What you get is what you expect
Pain is a major health care problem worldwide. It affects the well-being of millions of individuals, and its financial burden upon our societies is considerable. Pain is not a simple reflection of the degree of tissue-damage, it is strongly influenced by expectations and beliefs individuals hold about pain and their ability to cope with it. In this lecture, Dr Katja Wiech from the Centre for Pain Research, talks about research into how expectations can influence the outcome of pain treatment.

DifferenceMakers: Amit Varma
Varma and his team designed a system made up of heating panels to simulate the effects of fire on steel structures. The panels have electrical coils, like giant toaster ovens, and are placed close to the surface of the specimens. As the system simulates the effects of fire, test structures are subjected to forces with hydraulic equipment to mimic the loads experienced in buildings. http://www.purdue.edu/differencemakers/varma.html
