Pain additivity, diffuse noxious inhibitory controls, and attention: a functional measurement analysis.


This study utilized the methodology of Functional Measurement theory to investigate the additivity of painful and non-painful thermally induced experiences at one body site with those produced by brief noxious and innocuous electrical stimuli at another. Forty healthy young subjects were tested, using a Peltier thermode to induce tonic pain and an… (More)
