The influence of attention on the processing of pain in the secondary somatosensory cortex (SII) was analyzed using magnetoencephalography in response to painful infra-red heat stimuli applied to the left hand in six male healthy subjects, aged 22-28 years. Three experimental paradigms were chosen to deliver attention dependent results under comparable(More)
We investigated the effects of expectation on intensity ratings and somatosensory evoked magnetic fields and electrical potentials following painful infrared laser stimuli in six healthy subjects. The stimulus series contained trials preceded by different auditory cues which either contained valid, invalid or no information about the upcoming laser(More)
