My research focuses on expectancy learning manipulations and conditioning mechanisms that mediate or modulate the placebo response in chronic inflammatory pain conditions. The aim of this research project is to reduce side effects and regular long-term pharmacological therapies.  Furthermore, special focus is directed at understanding the psychological, neurobiological and genetic determinants of expectation mechanisms.
