  1. 1. Pain influences somatosensory perception : An experimental and clinical study

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Surgical Science

    Författare :Ann-Sofie Leffler; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2002]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Muscle pain; referred pain; hypoaesthesia; allodynia; musculoskeletal; pain; sensory abnormality; quantitative sensory testing; trapezius myalgia; somatosensory perception; perception thresholds; diffuse noxious inhibitory controls DNIC ; central hyperexcitability; tourniquet test; cold-pressor test.;

    Sammanfattning : The underlying mechanisms maintaining long-term pain localised to musculoskeletal structures and joints are not infrequently unknown. In routine clinical work with such patients insufficient attention has been paid to phenomena indicating altered excitability of the central nervous system (CNS). LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Disability of the upper extremity is common after stroke. To be able to evaluate recovery and effects of interventions there is a need for stable and precise outcome measures. In order to design and target efficient rehabilitation interventions it is important to know which factors that affect the ability to perform daily hand activities. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Functional mapping of somatosensory cortices in the human brain

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neuroscience

  5. 5. Position-matching and goal-directed reaching acuity of the upper limb in chronic neck pain : associations to self-rated characteristics

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå University, Faculty of Medicine, Surgical and Perioperative Sciences

    Författare :Jonas Sandlund; [2008]
    Nyckelord :Neck pain; whiplash injuries; shoulder; proprioception; kinesthesis; vision; psychophysiology; somatosensory disorders; psychomotor performance; self assessment;

    Sammanfattning : Neck-shoulder pain is common in the general population and causes individual suffering as well as large costs for the society. Despite substantial efforts, there is still a shortage of methods for objective diagnosis and effective rehabilitation of such disorders. Thus, there is a great need to develop and evaluate new methods for these purposes. LÄS MER
