Operculoinsular cortex encodes pain intensity at the earliest stages of cortical processing as indicated by amplitude of laser-evoked potentials in humans.

Abstract:

Converging evidence from different functional imaging studies indicates that the intensity of activation of different nociceptive areas (including the operculoinsular cortex, the primary somatosensory cortex, and the anterior cingulate gyrus) correlates with perceived pain intensity in the human brain. Brief radiant laser pulses excite selectively Adelta and C nociceptors in the superficial skin layers, provide a purely nociceptive input, and evoke brain potentials (laser-evoked potentials, L...
