    Lauren 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...

    Jason 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...

    Tor D Wager
    Department of Psychology, University of Colorado, Boulder, Colorado 80309, USA
    J Neurosci 31:439-52. 2011

    Natalie 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...

    Martin 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...
