Discounting future pain: effects on self-reported pain

Branas-Garza, Pablo, Espinosa, María Paz and Repollés, María (2010) Discounting future pain: effects on self-reported pain. Neuroscience and Medicine, 1 (1) . pp. 14-19. ISSN 2158-2912 [Article] (doi:10.4236/nm.2010.11002)


Empirical results are presented showing that people who acknowledge pain anticipation when expecting an injury ex-perience higher sensitivity to pain (GREP, Robinson et al., 2001). The positive correlation between sensitivity and an-ticipation is highly significant. However, no relationship is found between anticipation and pain endurance.
