Probing and modulating brain circuits by deep brain stimulation

Alternative title:
Functional connectivity between the sensory nuclei of thalamus and the periaqueductal grey in pain modulation
Abstract:

Backgrounds. The periaqueductal grey(PAG) plays an important role in the descending pain modulation systems, which has been known to inhibit incoming nociceptive signals at the level of the spinal dorsal horn. But pain mechanism involves the brain and the spinal cord to maintain homeostasis, so theoretically pain modulation mechanism should involve both direction: ascending and descending pathways to the brain and spinal cord dorsal horn. However, literature addressing this questi...
