Throbbing Pain Is Associated With Brain Waves

Recommended Posts


Via UF Center for Musculoskeletal Pain Research:

Have you ever experienced throbbing toothache or migraine? Throbbing pain, long believed to be associated with the beating of our hearts, has now been shown by UF researchers to be associated with brain waves instead. It is not yet known how the brain waves cause the pain, but they are believed to act as carriers of certain signals. This finding opens the door for a slew of new research for the treatment of pain, and means that future therapies and medicines might work by targeting brain activity rather than constricting blood vessels to lessen throbbing pain.
