Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

This is the first study to demonstrate abnormal neurophysiological resting state activity in SOR individuals under task-free. Findings may indicate a fundamental deficiency in brain activity that may underlie the daily difficulties experienced by individuals with SOR. Moreover, the brain activity pattern found validates previous findings associating SOR and pain sensitivity. This study may suggest a new direction for a remedial approach using neurofeedback in individuals with SOR.
