RB: I have often come across this (as you say innacurate) use of the word in this context; I'm sure part of it is to do with the euphony and rhythm of the expression, since "centre" seems crying out for the 3 syllables to follow it.
For some reason the notes to/from asker are not showing. I would point out, however, that term "névralgique" implies pain (as in neuralgia). The "alg" bit is from "algos", the Greek word for "pain". Hardly an appropriate image for the context.

reprendre (I know, it's already been asked, but...)
Explanation: "Reprendre" may have many connotations, the closest one to the context would be "recapturing", but I think that "reproducing" fits better.
