At this month’s Integrative Medicine Grand Rounds, Dr. Christian Büchel covered a broad spectrum of placebo and nocebo effects. He started with placebo and nocebo effects in pain and showed how they are linked to brain spinal cord processes. He then covered results concerning their neuropharmacology.
The second part focused on a new study investigating nocebo effects in respiration. He ended with a comparison of the placebo and nocebo effects in both systems and described commonalities and differences.
