Functional Spectroscopy Mapping of Pain Processing Cortical Areas During Non-Painful Peripheral Electrical Stimulation of the Accessory Spinal Nerve

Peripheral electrical stimulation (PES), which encompasses several techniques with heterogeneous physiological responses, has shown in some cases remarkable outcomes for pain treatment and clinical rehabilitation. However, results are still mixed, mainly because there is a lack of understanding regarding its neural mechanisms of action. In this study, we aimed to assess its effects by measuring cortical activation as indexed by functional near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS).
