Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) is a neuropathic pain syndrome that typically exhibits paroxysmal pain. However, the true mechanism of pain processing is unclear. We aim to evaluate the neural activity changes, before and after radiofrequency rhizotomy, in TN patients using functional MRI (fMRI) with sensory and motor stimulations.
