Neuroimaging studies have provided a major contribution to our understanding of the mechanisms of the placebo effect in neurological and psychiatric disorders. Expectation of symptom improvement has long been believed to play a critical role in the placebo effect, and is associated with increased endogenous striatal dopamine release in Parkinson’s disease and increased endogenous opioid transmission in placebo analgesia. Evidence from positron emission tomography and functional magnetic… Expand
