Acute stress suppresses pain by activating brain pathways that engage opioid or non-opioid mechanisms. Here we show that an opioid-independent form of this phenomenon, termed stress-induced analgesia, is mediated by the release of endogenous marijuana-like (cannabinoid) compounds in the brain. Blockade of cannabinoid CB(1) receptors in the periaqueductal(More)

My three-year term as editor of Journal of Marketing concludes with the October 2005 issue. On the basis of my interactions with various people in the marketing community, I believe that marketing science and practice are in transition, bringing change to the content and boundaries of the discipline. Thus, I invited some distinguished scholars to contribute(More)
Recent work in our laboratories has demonstrated that an opioid-independent form of stress-induced analgesia (SIA) is mediated by endogenous ligands for cannabinoid receptors-anandamide and 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG) [A.G. Hohmann, R.L. Suplita, N.M. Bolton, M.H. Neely, D. Fegley, R. Mangieri, J.F. Krey, J.M. Walker, P.V. Holmes, J.D. Crystal, A.(More)
In the preceding article, Vargo and Lusch (V&L; 2004) observe that an evolution is underway toward a new dominant logic for marketing. The new dominant logic has important implications for marketing theory, practice, and pedagogy , as well as for general management and public policy. Thus, their observations are likely to resonate with a broad cross-section(More)

Marketing managers can increase shareholder value by structuring a customer portfolio to reduce the vulnerability and volatility of cash flows. This article demonstrates how financial portfolio theory provides an organizing framework for (1) diagnosing the variability in a customer portfolio, (2) assessing the complementarity/similarity of market segments,(More)
Many firms strive to create relationships with customers, but not all customers are motivated to build close commercial relationships. This article introduces a theoretical framework that explains how relationship-specific attachment styles account for customers' distinct preferences for closeness and how both attachment styles and preferences for closeness(More)
Administered the Eysenck Personality Questionnaire (EPQ) and Psychological Screening Inventory (PSI) to a group of technical college students (N = 100) who were taking trade training courses. The groups were similar in terms of age and socioeconomic status. A factorial analysis was performed on both of the resulting sets of intercorrelations, and two(More)
The HDHQ, 16 PF and PSI were administered to 315 detainees at Medomsley Detention Centre, Durham, along with tests of intelligence and attainment, and measures of previous criminal history. One hundred and ninety-one boys were subsequently reconvicted within two years of their release. They were found to have lower scores on reading and arithmetic tests, to(More)
A factor analytic study of personality questionnaire data obtained from a group of 175 long-term prisoners revealed a factor structure which appears to be peculiar to prisoners. In particular, hostility and anxiety obtain prominence in the structure, while the theoretically significant dimension of extraversion is relegated in importance.
