English term or phrase: descending noxious inhibitory control
Expectations have been found to alter spinal reflexes and the descending noxious inhibitory control. This raises an important issue that needs to be addressed in future research: While for expectation- induced placebo responses, higher centers of the CNS are needed, Pavlovian conditioning may also occur within the peripheral neural circuitry, e.g., within the enteric nervous system.

Reference information:
Descending inhibitory control - silazni inhibitorni nadzor ili silazna inhibitorna kontrola, ili pak u ovom kontekstu slabljenje inhibitorne kontrole.
Ono što me muči je "noxious".

Example sentence(s):
  • Etnički (rasni) faktori imaju utjecaja na više centre živčanog sustava koji moduliraju bol aktivacijom silaznog inhibitornog nadzora.
  • Ozljeda aferentnog živca uzrokuje slabljenje inhibitorne kontrole zbog nedostatka opijatnih receptora.
