- Specifying the non-specific factors underlying opioid analgesia: expectancy, attention, and affectLauren Y Atlas
Department of Psychology, New York University, 6 Washington Place, New York, NY, 10003, USA
Psychopharmacology (Berl) 231:813-23. 2014..Furthermore, drug effects may not be isolated by drug vs. placebo comparisons if drugs interact with relevant psychological processes...
- How expectations shape painLauren Y Atlas
Department of Psychology, New York University, 6 Washington Place, New York, NY 10003, United States
Neurosci Lett 520:140-8. 2012..Finally, we address open questions regarding the psychological processes likely to play an intervening role in expectancy effects on pain...
- Dissociable influences of opiates and expectations on painLauren Y Atlas
Department of Psychology, New York University, New York, New York 10003, USA
J Neurosci 32:8053-64. 2012..These findings reveal that opiates and placebo treatments both influence clinically relevant outcomes and operate without mutual interference...
- Common representation of pain and negative emotion in the midbrain periaqueductal grayJason T Buhle
Social Cognitive Affective Neuroscience Unit, Department of Psychology, Columbia University, 406 Schermerhorn Hall, 1190 Amsterdam Avenue, NY 10027, USA
Soc Cogn Affect Neurosci 8:609-16. 2013..In sum, these data sets comprised 198 additional participants. We found increased activity in PAG in all eight studies. Taken together, these findings suggest PAG is a key component of human affective responses...
- Predicting individual differences in placebo analgesia: contributions of brain activity during anticipation and pain experienceTor D Wager
Department of Psychology, University of Colorado, Boulder, Colorado 80309, USA
J Neurosci 31:439-52. 2011..This approach provides a framework that will allow prediction accuracy to increase as new studies provide more precise information for future predictive models...

- Opposing effects of expectancy and somatic focus on painNatalie E Johnston
Department of Neuroscience, Weill Cornell Medical College, New York, New York, USA
PLoS ONE 7:e38854. 2012..Overall, the results show that attention to the body cannot explain pain-enhancing expectancy effects, and that focusing on sensory/discriminative aspects of pain might be a useful pain-regulation strategy when severe pain is expected...
- Modeling the hemodynamic response function in fMRI: efficiency, bias and mis-modelingMartin A Lindquist
Department of Statistics, Columbia University, New York, NY 10027, USA
Neuroimage 45:S187-98. 2009..Because virtually all fMRI studies in cognitive and affective neuroscience employ these models, the results bear on the interpretation of hemodynamic response estimates across a wide variety of psychological and neuroscientific studies...
