LingLing Weng, MSc
LingLing started as a PhD student at Leiden University in October 2017. Her PhD research focuses on generalization of placebo and nocebo effects between itch and pain in healthy people. She is curious about the mechanisms underlying placebo effects and nocebo effects in itch and pain, and try to explore common and specific expectation mechanisms in physical symptoms of pain and itch.
LingLing will try to combine psychological (e.g. placebo effect, expectation) with physical factors to predict the development of disease (e.g. itch, pain).Back to the people page
