• A tonic heat test stimulus yields a larger and more reliable conditioned pain modulation effect compared to a phasic heat test stimulus 

      Lie, Marie; Matre, Dagfinn; Hansson, Per; Stubhaug, Audun; Zwart, John-Anker; Nilsen, Kristian Bernhard (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Introduction: The interest in conditioned pain modulation (CPM) as a clinical tool for measuring endogenously induced analgesia is increasing. There is, however, large variation in the CPM methodology, hindering comparison ...

      Chronic pain is often present at more than one anatomical location, leading to chronic overlapping pain conditions (COPC). Whether COPC represents a distinct pathophysiology from the occurrence of pain at only one site is ...
    • Psychophysical or spinal reflex measures when assessing conditioned pain modulation? 

      Lie, Marie; Petriu, Elena; Matre, Dagfinn; Hansson, Per; Andersen, Ole Kæseler; Zwart, John-Anker; Nilsen, Kristian Bernhard (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Background Assessing conditioning pain modulation (CPM) with spinal reflex measures may produce more objective and stable CPM effects than using psychophysical measures. The aim of the study was to compare the CPM effect ...
