Distinct brain mechanisms related to dental pain relief
from International & American Associations for Dental Research via ScienceDaily
Local anesthesia has made life more comfortable for dental patients since 1884. However, little is known about brain mechanisms related to dental pain relief. In this study, the researchers aimed to investigate task-related brain activity and functional connectivity patterns following onset of a regional anesthetic nerve block during continuous noxious dental stimulation.
