What Causes Temporomandibular Joint Problems?
Discussion The mandible normally grows in a symmetric downward and forward movement relative to the skull base. The condyle is the primary growth center. “The mandible is unique in that its 2 joints and growth centers function together as a single unit.” It is the last bone in the body to reach skeletal maturity. The mandible and its growth are important for maxillary growth and therefore many problems that affect the mandible affect the facial and skulls structures as well. These growth problems can be relatively insidious and therefore may need monitoring over longer periods of time such as patients with unde...

Sometimes just watching hurts -- and the signs of pain are seen in the brain
(Aalto University) Some people claim to experience pain just watching something painful to happen. In complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) patients, both own movements and observing other persons' movements may aggravate the pain. Researchers found that when CRPS patients feel pain caused by observing other person's movements, their brains display abnormal activation in many areas that respond to normal physical pain. Thus the pain the CRPS patients felt during movement observation presented similarities to the 'normal' pain. (Source: EurekAlert! - Biology)
