Symptom Improvement in Fibromyalgia Patients is Related to Reduced Network Connectivity as Measured by EEG Coherence
American College of Rheumatology Meeting Abstracts
2012 ACR/ARHP Annual Meeting
To assess changes in brain functional network connectivity (FC) in fibromyalgia (FM) patients treated with Reduced Impedance Noninvasive Cortical Electrostimulation (RINCE). Previous studies using fMRI have reported increased FC in FM, and pain reduction has been shown to correlate with reduced FC following intervention (Arthritis Rheum. Epub 2012). Herein, we explored the notion that FC, as evaluated by electroencephalography (EEG) coherence, would be reduced by treatment with RINCE and associated with clinical improvements.
