Low Back Pain and the Brain

Are Functional Brain Alterations Present in Low Back Pain?

A Systematic Review of EEG Studies

Stijn Schouppe (UGent) , Sophie Van Oosterwijck (UGent) , Lieven Danneels (UGent) , Stefaan Van Damme (UGent) and Jessica Van Oosterwijck (UGent)

This review presents an overview of the current understanding of the functional LBP brain measured with EEG. The limited evidence in current research suggests altered cortical function regarding balance control, somatosensory processing, and decision making in LBP, and highlights opportunities for future EEG-research.
