If replicated in clinical samples, these trait measures could be employed to reduce variability in treatment trials for conditions, such as persistent pain, mood and movement disorders, where placebo effects can be particularly prominent and obscure the effects of potentially active treatments. CONCLUSIONS An emerging literature is demonstrating that cognitive and emotional processes that are engaged during the administration of an otherwise inactive agent, a placebo, are capable of activating internal mechanisms that modify physiology.
