Joe Blythe, MSc
In November 2017 Joe began his PhD research in the Health, Medical and Neuropsychology Unit as a part of Prof. Evers’ Vici project, “The power of expectations: Unraveling the role of nocebo effects in the sensitization of somatic symptoms.” His research focuses on identifying the neurobiological mechanisms underlying nocebo effects in itch, through the use of pharmacological inductions, associative learning, and neuroimaging (fMRI). His goal is to identify the neural circuitry which translates negative expectations into measurable nocebo responses.Back to the people page
