Abstract

An overview is given of CNS mechanisms which are behind the beneficial effects of VPL-VPM thalamic stimulation in the treatment of neuropathic pain. Further research in this field is urgently needed and the recent possibility to combine Deep Brain Stimulation with positron emission tomography (PET)will certainly help to unravel the brain circuitry implicated in stimulation-produced analgesia. Brain stimulation is an artificial way to activate nervous tissue that is reversible and when correctly applied has few complications. The clinical results warrant a continued dissemination of brain stimulation as a treatment in well selected cases of neuropathic pain.
