Brain entropy changes in classical trigeminal neuralgia.

Classical trigeminal neuralgia (CTN) is a common and severe chronic neuropathic facial pain disorder. The pathological mechanisms of CTN are not fully understood. Recent studies have shown that resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging (rs-fMRI) could provide insights into the functional changes of CTN patients and the complexity of neural processes. However, the precise spatial pattern of complexity changes in CTN patients is still unclear. This study is designed to explore the spatial distribution of complexity alterations in CTN patients using brain entropy (BEN).
