Ann Neurol. 2018 Nov 01;: Authors: Kikkert S, Mezue M, O'Shea J, Henderson-Slater D, Johansen-Berg H, Tracey I, Makin TR Abstract OBJECTIVE: Phantom limb pain (PLP) is notoriously difficult to treat, partly due to an incomplete understanding of PLP-related disease mechanisms. Non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS) is used to modulate plasticity in various neuropathological diseases, including chronic pain. While NIBS can alleviate neuropathic pain (including PLP), both disease and treatment mechanisms remain tenuous. Insight into the mechanisms underlying both PLP and NIBS-induced PLP relief is needed for future implementation of such ... read more
