Cort Johnson writes about fibromyalgia and other pain conditions on his website Health Rising.
Now he covers the various issues regarding votex based brain studies, and what a new Chinese study discovered:
…193 studies involving 16,000 patients with mental illnesses (depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, etc.) surprisingly indicated that portions of the brain (anterior cingulate, insula) associated with information processing and executive decision-making (not emotional issues) were common to all mental illnesses. These are the portions of the brain that involve attention, planning and decision-making and the ability to inhibit impulses. The authors of the study simply called them alarm bells in the brain that were not functioning well. It may be that in FM the alarm bells are not alerting the brain to problems with pain processing.
