CURRENT RESEARCH

Spatiotemporal parameters of cortical sensorimotor processing during orofacial palpation, jaw movement and biting in individuals with chronic orofacial pain.

This study will use non-invasive methods of comparing brain activation during jaw functional activities in individuals with two specific forms of chronic orofacial pain, trigeminal neuralgia and temporomandibular disorder (myalgic sub-type). Participation will be limited to one session lasting approximately 4 hours at the Physical Therapy Institute at the Midwestern University Multispecialty Clinic located in Downers Grove, IL. Subjects will be compensated $75 for their time.
