    Falk Eippert
    Department of Systems Neuroscience, University Medical Center Hamburg Eppendorf, 20246 Hamburg, Germany
    Science 326:404. 2009
    ..These results provide direct evidence for spinal inhibition as one mechanism of placebo analgesia and highlight that psychological factors can act on the earliest stages of pain processing in the central nervous system...
  2. pmc The effect of opioid receptor blockade on the neural processing of thermal stimuli
    Eszter D Schoell
    NeuroImage Nord, Department of Systems Neuroscience, University Medical Center Hamburg Eppendorf, Hamburg, Germany
    PLoS ONE 5:e12344. 2010
    ..On the neural level, painful thermal stimulation was associated with a negative BOLD signal within the pregenual anterior cingulate cortex, and this deactivation was abolished by naloxone...
  3. ncbi request reprint Neurobiological mechanisms underlying the blocking effect in aversive learning
    Falk Eippert
    Department of Systems Neuroscience, University Medical Center Hamburg Eppendorf, 20246 Hamburg, Germany
    J Neurosci 32:13164-76. 2012

    Falk Eippert
    Institute of Medical Psychology and Behavioral Neurobiology, University of Tuebingen, Germany
    Hum Brain Mapp 28:409-23. 2007
    ..The present study demonstrates that amygdala responses to threat-related stimuli can be controlled through the use of cognitive strategies depending on recruitment of prefrontal areas, thereby changing the subject's affective state...
