- Psychophysics, flare, and neurosecretory function in human pain models: capsaicin versus electrically evoked painChristian Geber
Klinik und Poliklinik für Neurologie der Universität Mainz, Germany
J Pain 8:503-14. 2007..We describe differences, similarities, and reproducibility of these human pain models. These data might help to interpret past and future results of human pain studies using experimental pain...
- Numbness in clinical and experimental pain--a cross-sectional study exploring the mechanisms of reduced tactile functionChristian Geber
Neurologische Universitatsklinik, Johannes Gutenberg Universitat, Mainz, Germany
Pain 139:73-81. 2008..Hypaesthesia (numbness) often encountered in clinical pain can be reproduced by experimental nociceptive stimulation. The time course of effects suggests a mechanism involving central plasticity...
- Test-retest and interobserver reliability of quantitative sensory testing according to the protocol of the German Research Network on Neuropathic Pain (DFNS): a multi-centre studyChristian Geber
Klinik und Poliklinik fur Neurologie, Universitätsmedizin der Johannes Gutenberg Universität, Mainz, Germany

- Comparison of LEP and QST and their contribution to standard sensory diagnostic assessment of spinal lesions: a pilot studyChristian Geber
Klinik und Poliklinik fur Neurologie, Universitätsmedizin der Johannes Gutenberg Universität, Langenbeckstrasse 1, 55131 Mainz, Germany
Neurol Sci 32:401-10. 2011..LEP detected more deficits than any single QST parameter or their combination but additional QST allows the detection of positive sensory signs. The diagnostic gain of SEP was limited...
- Revised definition of neuropathic pain and its grading system: an open case series illustrating its use in clinical practiceChristian Geber
Department of Neurology, University Medical Center, Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz, Germany
Am J Med 122:S3-12. 2009..Its clinical use should be further validated in prospective studies...
- Do intensity ratings and skin conductance responses reliably discriminate between different stimulus intensities in experimentally induced pain?Markus Breimhorst
Department of Neurology, University Medical Center of the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Langenbeckstrasse 1, Mainz, Germany
J Pain 12:61-70. 2011..Pain researchers are furthermore encouraged to consider individual and gender differences when measuring pain intensity and the concomitant SCRs in experimental settings...
- Evolving understandings about complex regional pain syndrome and its treatmentMarcel Fechir
Klinik und Poliklinik fur Neurologie, Johannes Gutenberg Universitat Mainz, Langenbeckstrasse 1, Mainz, Germany
Curr Pain Headache Rep 12:186-91. 2008..The common therapeutic aim is to maintain or restore normal function of the affected extremity. Beyond highlighting pathophysiologic concepts, this article describes recent therapeutic approaches...
- A pathway in the brainstem for roll-tilt of the subjective visual vertical: evidence from a lesion-behavior mapping studyBernhard Baier
Department of Neurology, University of Mainz, 55131 Mainz, Germany, and Department of Neurology and Integrated Center For Research and Treatment of Vertigo Balance and Ocular Motor Disorders, Ludwig Maximillians University, 80539 Munich, Germany
J Neurosci 32:14854-8. 2012..Present data indicate that graviceptive otolith signals present a predominant role in the multisensory system of verticality perception...
- Facilitation and inhibition by capsaicin of cholinergic neurotransmission in the guinea-pig small intestineChristian Geber
, , 55131, Mainz, Germany
Naunyn Schmiedebergs Arch Pharmacol 372:277-83. 2006..The facilitatory effect is indirect and involves tachykinin release and excitation of NK1 and NK3 receptors on cholinergic neurons. The inhibition of acetylcholine release may be due to a decrease of Ca2+ influx into cholinergic neurons...
