Chronic pain is associated with cortical
functional, neurochemical and
morphological changes (Apkarian et al.,
2001, Grachev et al., 2002, Apkarian et al.,
2004). Furthermore, complex regional pain
syndrome (CRPS) patients exhibit a specific
deficit on an emotional decision making
task, suggestive of damage to the
medial/orbito-frontal cortex (Apkarian et al.,
2004). Here we hypothesize the
occurrence of white matter changes,
