    Peter Krummenacher
    University Hospital Zurich, Switzerland
    J Cogn Neurosci 22:1670-81. 2010
    ..These results stand at odd to the common view that DA generally improves signal-to-noise ratios. Paranormal ideation seems an important personality dimension and should be assessed in investigations on the detection of signals in noise...
  2. ncbi request reprint [Prefrontal cortex mediated control of expectations in placebo analgesia]
    P Krummenacher
    Collegium Helveticum, ETH Zürich and Universität Zürich
    Schmerz 25:440-3. 2011
    ..These findings suggest that expectation-induced placebo analgesia is mediated by symmetric prefrontal cortex function. Possible implications for medical practice and clinical trial research will be discussed in the article...

    Jair Stern
    Collegium Helveticum, ETH and University of Zurich, Schmelzbergstr 25, 8092 CH Zurich, Switzerland
    Neurobiol Learn Mem 95:326-34. 2011
    ..These results indicate an opioid-mediated placebo effect within a circumscribed cognitive domain in healthy volunteers...
  4. ncbi request reprint Naloxone modulates visual judgments of similarity but not dissimilarity
    Peter Krummenacher
    Department of Neurology, Neuropsychology Unit, University Hospital Zurich, 8091, Zurich, Switzerland
    Cogn Affect Behav Neurosci 13:567-74. 2013
    ..The task introduced here could be used for the implicit study and quantification of subtle affective-cognitive processes beyond the level of mere questionnaire data...
  5. ncbi request reprint Implicit learning of sequential bias in a guessing task: failure to demonstrate effects of dopamine administration and paranormal belief
    John Palmer
    Department of Neurology, University Hospital Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland
    Conscious Cogn 16:498-506. 2007
    ..None of the hypotheses were supported by the data. It is suggested that a simple binary guessing task with a focus on prediction accuracy during early trials should be considered for future explorations...
  6. doi request reprint Prefrontal cortex modulates placebo analgesia
    Peter Krummenacher
    Collegium Helveticum, Schmelzbergstrasse 25, CH 8092 Zurich, Switzerland
    Pain 148:368-74. 2010
    ..While rTMS did not affect pain experience, it completely blocked placebo analgesia. These findings suggest that expectation-induced placebo analgesia is mediated by symmetric prefrontal cortex function...
