Research Group: Stress, Pain and Pain Modulation

Programme of Research

Our group has a main interest in the impact of stress and altered stress hormone levels (adrenocortical reactivity) on the development and maintenance of enhanced pain sensitivity. For this purpose we are performing complementary psychophysical/psychophysiological experimental and clinical studies in humans as well as neurobiological and behavioral experiments in animal models. Additional more recently initiated psychophysiological research activities are devoted to endogenous pain control systems and their dependence on psychological processes like classical conditioning, expectancies and placebo-related effects.
