When you take a pill, your brain starts to anticipate. Based on certain expectations, it produces painkilling or soothing substances: the so called placebo effect. That’s why your headache possibly vanishes after swallowing a fake pill. Andrea Evers, professor health care psychology (University of Leiden) investigates how physicians can use this placebo effect to cure their patients more efficiently. In 2019 Evers received the prestigious Stevin award for her placebo research. In cooperation with Dimensie and Sirius. Moderator: dr. Pascal Wilhelm (UCT).
