OBJECTIVES Prior research has shown a relationship between blood glucose levels and some forms of self-regulation (eg, executive function), with low blood glucose levels associated with impaired self-regulation. Further, engagement in self-regulation tasks depletes blood glucose. Given these relationships, the present study examined whether blood glucose is(More)
 Overview, Informed Consent & Eligibility Determination (Health Status Screening) -Two testing sessions were completed on separate days -Testing session and test order were counterbalanced -Informed consent obtained at beginning of first testing session  Life Events Checklist Administered -Self-report measure that indicated the number of traumatic events(More)
s The Journal of Pain S63 relationship between participant sex and pain outcomes. Results indicated that stoic fortitude and SS were significant mediators of the relationship between sex and heat and cold tolerance. SS, but not stoicism, also mediated the relationship between sex and ischemic and electric pain tolerance. These findings lend support for(More)
Animal studies have shown that dorsal horn neurons become hyperexcitable (ie, wind-up) in response to a repetitive, constant-intensity, noxious stimulus. Temporal summation of pain (eg, increased pain in response to a repetitive, constant-intensity painful heat pulse) is believed to reflect the psychophysical correlate of wind-up. We examined temporal(More)
Habituation (ie, decreases in responding) and sensitization (ie, increases in responding) after prolonged or repeated exposures to a fixed stimulus have been identified as important in adaptation to repeated or prolonged noxious stimulation. Determinants of habituation or sensitization are poorly understood, and experimental investigation of habituation of(More)
