Modulation of pain by social evaluative stress

In complete agreement with the biopsychosocial model of pain perception, which defines conscious pain perception as the result of a closely intertwined interaction of neurophysiological processes and psychological and social factors, the influence of a social-evaluative stress paradigm on pain perception is to be examined in several studies. The main focus of research lies on expanding the social evaluative threat to also include truly socially degrading or enhancing performance feedback, as well as on maintaining a longer lasting subjective stress experience in order to investigate the role of these factors in the context of stress-induced pain modulation.
