Psychologically induced cooling of a specific body part caused by the illusory ownership of an artificial counterpart
These findings are the first evidence that: taking ownership of an artificial body part has consequences for the real body part; that the awareness of the authors' physical self and the physiological regulation of self are closely linked in a top-down manner; and that cognitive processes that disrupt the sense of body ownership may in turn disrupt temperature regulation in numerous states characterized by both.

Graded motor imagery is effective for long-standing complex regional pain syndrome: a randomised controlled trial
The hypothesis that a MIP initially not involving limb movement is effective for CRPS1 is upheld and the involvement of cortical abnormalities in the development of this disorder is supported. Expand
A pain neuromatrix approach to patients with chronic pain.
The clinical approach focuses on decreasing all inputs that imply that body tissue is in danger and then on activating components of the pain neuromatrix without activating its output. Expand
Pain and motor control of the lumbopelvic region: effect and possible mechanisms.

It is argued that, at least in some cases, pain may cause the changes in control of the trunk muscles in people with low back pain, and strategies of prevention and rehabilitation of LBP are argued. Expand
A Randomized Controlled Trial of Intensive Neurophysiology Education in Chronic Low Back Pain
The results suggest that pain neurophysiology education, but not back school type education, should be included in a wider pain management approach. Expand

This study focuses on the treatment of patients with chronic low back pain with unhelpful pain cognitions, which may limit physical performance and undermine physical assessment. Expand
Experimental muscle pain changes feedforward postural responses of the trunk muscles
The results suggest that acute experimentally induced pain may affect feedforward postural activity of the trunk muscles, with consistent impairment of transversus abdominis (TrA) activity. Expand
Joining Forces – Combining Cognition-Targeted Motor Control Training with Group or Individual Pain Physiology Education: A Successful Treatment For Chronic Low Back Pain
Combining a motor control training approach with individualised education about pain physiology is effective in this group of patients and may be more cost-efficient than group education, which imparts a lesser effect. Expand
I can’t find it! Distorted body image and tactile dysfunction in patients with chronic back pain
Preliminary data indicate that body image is disrupted, and tactile acuity is decreased, in the area of usual pain, in patients with chronic back pain, and this finding raises the possibility that training body image or Tactile acuity may help patients in chronic spinal pain. Expand
Why do some patients keep hurting their back? Evidence of ongoing back muscle dysfunction during remission from recurrent back pain
The current results provide the first evidence of a candidate mechanism for recurrent episodes of low back pain, and activity of deep back muscles is different in people with a recurrent unilateral LBP, despite the resolution of symptoms. Expand
