Summary of "Nocebo Hyperalgesia can be Induced by the Observation of a Model Showing Natural Pain Expressions."

Nocebo hyperalgesia is an increase in pain through the expectation of such an increase as a consequence of a sham treatment. Nocebo hyperalgesia can be induced by observation of a model demonstrating increased pain via verbal pain ratings. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether observing natural pain behavior, such as facial pain expressions, can also induce nocebo responses.

Calcium channel α2δ1 subunit mediates secondary orofacial hyperalgesia through PKC-TRPA1/gap junction signaling.

Orofacial pain is characterized by its easy spread to adjacent areas, thus presenting with primary hyperalgesia (hypersensitivity at the site of injury) and secondary hyperalgesia (extra-territorial h...

Dezocine attenuates the remifentanil-induced postoperative hyperalgesia by inhibition of phosphorylation of CaMKⅡα.

Remifentanil, ultra-short-acting μ-opioid receptor agonist, has the greatest advantage in analgesia but could increase postoperative pain scores and induces postoperative hyperalgesia. Dezocine is a ...

Pain-related Fear as a Facilitator of Nocebo Hyperalgesia

Nocebo hyperalgesia is characterized by adverse pain outcomes, induced by patients' expectations. In the lab, nocebo effects are commonly studied via classical conditioning, a method that ...

The Role of Learning in Nocebo Hyperalgesia

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An increased sensation to painful stimuli that may follow damage to soft tissue containing NOCICEPTORS or injury to a peripheral nerve. Hyperalgesia can occur both at the site of tissue damage (primary hyperalgesia) and in the surrounding undamaged areas (secondary hyperalgesia). (Kandel et al., Principles of Neural Science, 3d ed, p386)

The study of natural phenomena by observation, measurement, and experimentation.

Statistical formulations or analyses which, when applied to data and found to fit the data, are then used to verify the assumptions and parameters used in the analysis. Examples of statistical models are the linear model, binomial model, polynomial model, two-parameter model, etc.

The act of regarding attentively and studying facts and occurrences, gathering data through analyzing, measuring, and drawing conclusions, with the purpose of applying the observed information to theoretical assumptions. Observation as a scientific method in the acquisition of knowledge began in classical antiquity; in modern science and medicine its greatest application is facilitated by modern technology. Observation is one of the components of the research process.
