The tendency to "catastrophize" during painful stimulation contributes to more intense pain experience and increased emotional distress. Catastrophizing has been broadly conceived as an exaggerated negative "mental set" brought to bear during painful experiences. Although findings have been consistent in showing a relation between catastrophizing and pain,(More)

We show that brome mosaic virus (BMV) RNA replication protein 1a, 2a polymerase, and a cis-acting replication signal recapitulate the functions of Gag, Pol, and RNA packaging signals in conventional retrovirus and foamy virus cores. Prior to RNA replication, 1a forms spherules budding into the endoplasmic reticulum membrane, sequestering viral(More)
Paired box (PAX) genes play a critical role in human development and disease. The PAX2 gene is expressed in primitive cells of the kidney, ureter, eye, ear and central nervous system. We have conducted a mutational analysis of PAX2 in a family with optic nerve colobomas, renal hypoplasia, mild proteinuria and vesicoureteral reflux. We report a single(More)
BACKGROUND Pain is the primary indication for both primary and revision total knee arthroplasty (TKA); however, most arthroplasty outcome measures do not take pain into account. OBJECTIVE To document the prospective pain experience following TKA, with subjective pain-specific questionnaires to determine if comorbidities, preoperative pain or preoperative(More)
The present study examined the prospective value of response expectancies (ie, pain, sleep) and behavioral outcome expectancies (ie, return to function) in the prediction of pain severity and functional limitations 12 months after total knee arthroplasty (TKA). The study sample consisted of 120 individuals (73 women, 47 men) with osteoarthritis of the knee(More)
The present study examined the role of catastrophizing in predicting levels of pain and disability in a sample of individuals who had sustained soft-tissue injuries to the neck, shoulders or back following work or motor vehicle accidents. Participants were 86 (27 men, 59 women) consecutive referrals to the Atlantic Pain Clinic, a multidisciplinary treatment(More)
The present research addressed the relation between catastrophizing, depression and response expectancies in anticipation of an experimental pain procedure. One hundred and twenty undergraduates (48 men, 72 women) participated in exchange for course credit. Prior to immersing one arm in a container of ice water, participants were asked to complete measures(More)
