Transcranial magnetic stimulation over contralateral primary somatosensory cortex disrupts perception of itch intensity (2018)
Journal Article
Jones, O., Schindler, I., & Holle, H. (2019). Transcranial magnetic stimulation over contralateral primary somatosensory cortex disrupts perception of itch intensity. Experimental Dermatology, 28(12), 1380-1384. https://doi.org/10.1111/exd.13803

© 2018 John Wiley & Sons A/S. Published by John Wiley & Sons Ltd Itch, a complex unpleasant sensation causing the desire to scratch, results from the activity of a network of brain regions. However, the specific functional contributions of indivi... Read More about Transcranial magnetic stimulation over contralateral primary somatosensory cortex disrupts perception of itch intensity.

Negative body image and cognitive biases to body size (2018)
Thesis
Szostak, N. M. (2018). Negative body image and cognitive biases to body size. (Thesis). University of Hull. Retrieved from https://hull-repository.worktribe.com/output/4220455

This thesis explored the relationship between cognitive biases to body size and one’s developed levels of body image concerns and weight status. Women with higher body image concerns were hypothesised to process body-related information in a biased f... Read More about Negative body image and cognitive biases to body size.

Exploring the process of itch and its dimensionality : investigations using transcranial magnetic stimulation (2016)
Thesis
Jones, O. H. (2016). Exploring the process of itch and its dimensionality : investigations using transcranial magnetic stimulation. (Thesis). University of Hull. Retrieved from https://hull-repository.worktribe.com/output/4219657

This thesis explored three main areas of acute itch: firstly, how to reliably measure it; secondly, whether it is of a multi-dimensional nature, and lastly, which brain regions are crucial in the process. Chapter 2 reports an experiment that directly... Read More about Exploring the process of itch and its dimensionality : investigations using transcranial magnetic stimulation.

Cognitive and anatomical correlates of neglect for peripersonal and extrapersonal space (2008)
Thesis
Aimola, L. (2008). Cognitive and anatomical correlates of neglect for peripersonal and extrapersonal space. (Thesis). University of Hull. Retrieved from https://hull-repository.worktribe.com/output/4213065

Spatial neglect is a neurological disorder where patients typically fail to orient or respond to events on their left side. Moreover, recent studies suggest that the severity of neglect may depend specifically on whether stimuli are presented within...
