Previous studies of herpes zoster (HZ) have focused on acute patient manifestations and the most common sequela, postherpetic neuralgia (PHN), both serving to disrupt brain dynamics. Although the majority of such patients gradually recover, without lingering severe pain, little is known about life situations of those who recuperate or the brain dynamics. Our goal was to determine whether default mode network (DMN) dynamics of the recuperative population normalize to the level of healthy individuals.
