In a recent publication in the journal eLife, Simon Desch and colleagues investigated the modulation of pain relief and corresponding neurochemical basis. They used a probabilistic pain relief task that either actively or passively induces a reduction of a tonic thermal pain stimulus. To explore the neurochemical bases, this task was embedded in a double-blind crossover design. To find out which factors modulate pain relief, as well as which neurotransmitters play a role in this process, click here.


Another research assistant has joined our group today! Welcome, Nora!
