An Adaptive Network Model for Pain and Pleasure through Spicy Food and its Desensitization

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

This paper aims to map out the adaptive causal pathways of processes underlying capsaicin consumption and the desensitization process of the TRPV1 receptor as a feedback loop together with pain and pleasure perception. In order to map out these causal capsaicin pathways, adaptive causal network modeling was applied, which is a way of modeling biological, neural, mental, and social processes from an adaptive causal modeling perspective.
