    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...

    N Engl J Med 368:1388-97. 2013
    ..Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) holds promise for identifying objective measures of pain, but brain measures that are sensitive and specific to physical pain have not yet been identified...

  1. The neural bases of placebo effects and their relation to regulatory processes
    TOR DESSART WAGER; Fiscal Year: 2010
    ..This proposal seeks to provide insight into the mechanisms of opioid-expectancy interactions at the psychological and brain systems levels of analysis. ..
