Aug 18, 2020

Can what we believe affect the outcome of a drug and change the neurochemistry of our brain? What happens when we connect with and believe in our doctors? The Placebo Effect is a powerful real thing which can have a big impact in treatments and everyday life.

Associate Professor Karin Jensen is the leader of the Pain Neuroimaging Lab at the Karolinska Institute, a research group focusing on brain mechanisms involved in the experience of pain and placebo effect.
