OBJECTIVE To investigate the anticipatory neural processes associated with the interruptive effects of pain anticipation on attention. METHODS Sustained attention was measured in healthy subjects (n=24) by the number of task errors in a go/no-go task involving temporal discrimination of non-painful cutaneous electrical stimuli. Painful distractors were randomly delivered to the same spatial location and the resulting increases in task errors (indicating interruption of attention) were… CONTINUE READING
