Abstract

Neuroimaging was applied to provide visual documentation of the presence of pain in a patient complaining of long-term neck pain. Activation in the pain-related brain matrix was increased after induced pain, compared with a resting baseline condition, and decreased after the pain had subsided somewhat.
