Abstract

A prototype has been developed to study the somatosensory activation using functional magnetic resonance imaging technologies (fMRI) .The complete system is based on two pneumatic pressure valves that activate an applicator which is totally compatible with the magnetic resonance and magnetoencephalography, and is controlled by programmable software. The system provides stimulation on the tender points area with accuracy of 0.8cm2, and it allows to determine the pain threshold in persons with different neuropathologies related with pain processes. It should be useful in the characterization and distinction of somatosensory, motor and pain areas.
