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)
Knowledge of the chemical identity and role of urinary pheromones in fish is scarce, yet it is necessary in order to understand the integration of multiple senses in adaptive responses and the evolution of chemical communication [1]. In nature, Mozambique tilapia (Oreochromis mossambicus) males form hierarchies, and females mate preferentially with dominant(More)
The conjugates of 6-substituted 1-oxoindanoyl carboxylic acids with L-isoleucine are mimics of the plant hormone (+)-7-iso-JA-L-Ile (3) that controls and regulates secondary metabolism and stress responses. In order to generate ligands that can be used as hormone-like compounds possessing different biological activities, an efficient and short synthesis of(More)
