Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation in the Treatment of Facial Pain.

Link – Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation in the Treatment of Facial Pain. Abstract Non-invasive neuromodulation techniques such as transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) enable researchers and health care professionals to gain unique insight into brain functions and to treat a number of neurological and psychiatric conditions. Repeated applications of anodal tDCS over the primary motor […]

Short-Term Effect of Cervical Vagus Nerve Stimulation

Link – A Randomized Sham-Controlled Cross-Over Study on the Short-Term Effect of Non-Invasive Cervical Vagus Nerve Stimulation on Spinal and Supraspinal Nociception in Healthy Subjects. Abstract OBJECTIVE: The aim of the present study was to test the effects of vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) on the descending pain inhibition, quantified by the nociceptive flexor (RIII) reflex […]

tDCS in Chronic Low Back Pain.

Link – The Effectiveness of Attention Bias Modification with and without Trans Cranial Direct Current Stimulation in Chronic Low Back Pain. Abstract Objective: The present study aimed to compare the effect of ABM (attention bias modification) with and without tDCS (transcranial direct current stimulation) on attention bias, pain intensity, and disability due to pain and […]

Inhibition of Trigeminal Nociception by Vagus Nerve Stimulation

Link – Inhibition of Trigeminal Nociception by Non-invasive Vagus Nerve Stimulation: Investigating the Role of GABAergic and Serotonergic Pathways in a Model of Episodic Migraine. Abstract Migraine is a prevalent neurological disease that is characterized by unpredictable episodic attacks of intense head pain. The underlying pathology involves sensitization and activation of the trigeminal system. Although […]

tDCS the primary motor cortex for pain

Link – Anodal transcranial direct current stimulation over the primary motor cortex attenuates capsaicin-induced dynamic mechanical allodynia and mechanical pain sensitivity in humans. Abstract BACKGROUND: Anodal transcranial direct current stimulation over the primary cortex has been shown to activate regions of the brain involved in the descending modulation of pain sensitivity. However, more research is […]

EEGCan Distinguish between Pain and.. OMG.

Link – Electroencephalography Can Distinguish between Pain and Anaesthetic Intervention in Conscious Lambs Undergoing Castration. Abstract Australian sheep routinely undergo painful surgical husbandry procedures without anaesthesia or analgesia. Electroencephalography (EEG) has been shown to be a successful measure of pain in livestock under a general anaesthetic. The aim of this study was to compare this […]

Link – Patient-Controlled Intravenous Morphine Analgesia Combined with Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation for Post-Thoracotomy Pain: A Cost-Effectiveness Study and A Feasibility For Its Future Implementation. Int J Environ Res Public Health. 2020 Jan 28;17(3): Authors: Rancic N, Mladenovic K, Ilic NV, Dragojevic-Simic V, Karanikolas M, Ilic TV, Stamenkovic DM Abstract This prospective randomized study aims […]

Emerging targets and uses of neuromodulation for pain.

Link – Emerging targets and uses of neuromodulation for pain. Expert Rev Neurother. 2019 Jan 25;:1-10 Authors: Costa B, Ferreira I, Trevizol A, Thibaut A, Fregni F Abstract INTRODUCTION: There has been great development in the testing of invasive and non-invasive neuromodulation for chronic pain. To date, it is known that central and peripheral stimulation […]
