Central representation of chronic ongoing neuropathic pain studied by positron emission tomography is a scientific article describing a positron emission tomography study of pain on eight patients with painful mononeuropathy.
|Subject group (help)
|Right-handed painful neuropathy patients
||8 / 4 / 4
A group of 8 right-handed painful neuropathy patients with 4 males and 4 females were included in the study.
The group was from 29 up to 68 years old.
Eight patients with painful mononeuropathy, all in lower extremity.
Four patients had pain in the right extremity, while 4 had in the left.
The spatial normalization was performed against the Computerized Brain Atlas (CBA) of Greitz
