  1. doi request reprint After-effects of cognitive control on pain
    N Silvestrini
    Research Center of the Institut Universitaire de Gériatrie de Montréal, Universite de Montreal, Montreal, Canada
    Eur J Pain 17:1225-33. 2013
    ..Given that higher order cognitive/attentional processes are also considered to be involved in pain modulatory mechanisms, we tested the idea that pain could be influenced by prior mobilization of cognitive resources...
  2. doi request reprint Automatic effort mobilization and the principle of resource conservation: one can only prime the possible and justified
    Nicolas Silvestrini
    Geneva Motivation Lab, Faculty of Psychology and Educational Science, Department of Psychology, University of Geneva, CH 1211 Geneva, Switzerland
    J Pers Soc Psychol 104:803-16. 2013
    ..The findings facilitate a theoretical integration of automaticity in effort mobilization with the principle of resource conservation...
  3. doi request reprint The joint effect of mood, task valence, and task difficulty on effort-related cardiovascular response and facial EMG
    Nicolas Silvestrini
    University of Geneva, FPSE, Department of Psychology, Bd du Pont d Arve 40, CH 1211 Geneva 4, Switzerland
    Int J Psychophysiol 73:226-34. 2009
    ..In summary, the findings are interpreted as further support for the mood-behavior-model [Gendolla, G.H.E., 2000. On the impact of mood on behavior: an integrative theory and a review. Rev. Gen. Psychol. 4, 378-408]...
  4. doi request reprint Mood-regulative hedonic incentive interacts with mood and task difficulty to determine effort-related cardiovascular response and facial EMG
    Nicolas Silvestrini
    University of Geneva, Switzerland
    Biol Psychol 82:54-63. 2009
    ..Results were generally as expected and facial EMG reactivity indicated efficient mood manipulations. In summary, the findings further support the predictions of the mood-behavior-model...
  5. doi request reprint β-adrenergic impact underlies the effect of mood and hedonic instrumentality on effort-related cardiovascular response
    Nicolas Silvestrini
    University of Geneva, Switzerland
    Biol Psychol 87:209-17. 2011
    ..Moreover, the PEP effects indicate that cardiovascular response was driven by beta-adrenergic impact on the heart rather than by vascular adjustments...

    Department of Psychology, University of Geneva, Geneva, Switzerland
    Psychophysiology 48:1157-64. 2011
    ..Total peripheral resistance reacted similarly as preejection period and systolic blood pressure. The findings are compatible with the effects of consciously experienced affect on effort-related cardiovascular response...
