Biopsychosocial Intervention for Stroke Carers (BISC): protocol for a feasibility randomized controlled trial (2017)
Journal Article
Walker, M. F., Thomas, S. A., Whitehead, P. J., Condon, L., Fisher, R. J., Kontou, E., …Cobley, C. (in press). Biopsychosocial Intervention for Stroke Carers (BISC): protocol for a feasibility randomized controlled trial. BMJ Open, 7, doi:10.1136/bmjopen-2017-018309. ISSN 2044-6055

Introduction Reducing length of hospital stay for stroke survivors often creates a shift in the responsibility of care towards informal carers. Adjustment to the caregiving process is experienced by many carers as overwhelming, complex and demand... Read More

Optic ataxia and the dorsal visual steam re-visited: impairment in bimanual haptic matching performed without vision (2017)
Journal Article
Jackson, S. R., Condon, L., Newport, R., Pears, S., Husain, M., Bajaj, N., & O'Donoghue, M. O. (in press). Optic ataxia and the dorsal visual steam re-visited: impairment in bimanual haptic matching performed without vision. Cortex, 98, doi:10.1016/j.cortex.2017.03.023. ISSN 0010-9452

The ‘two visual systems’ account proposed by Milner and Goodale (1992) argued that visual perception and the visual control of action depend upon functionally distinct and anatomically separable brain systems: a ventral stream of visual processing th... Read More

Cerebral cortical thickness in chronic pain due to knee osteoarthritis: the effect of pain duration and pain densitization (2016)
Journal Article
Alshuft, H., Condon, L., Dineen, R. A., & Auer, D. P. (in press). Cerebral cortical thickness in chronic pain due to knee osteoarthritis: the effect of pain duration and pain densitization. PLoS ONE, 11(9), doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0161687. ISSN 1932-6203

Objective This study investigates associations between cortical thickness and pain duration, and central sensitization as markers of pain progression in painful knee osteoarthritis. Methods Whole brain cortical thickness and pressure pain th... Read More

Associations of limbic-affective brain activity and severity of ongoing chronic arthritis pain are explained by trait anxiety (2016)
Journal Article
Cottam, W. J., Condon, L., Alshuft, H., Reckziegel, D., & Auer, D. P. (in press). Associations of limbic-affective brain activity and severity of ongoing chronic arthritis pain are explained by trait anxiety. NeuroImage: Clinical, 12, doi:10.1016/j.nicl.2016.06.022. ISSN 2213-1582

Functional magnetic resonance imaging studies (fMRI) have transformed our understanding of central processing of evoked pain but the typically used block and event-related designs are not best suited to the study of ongoing pain. Here we used arteria... Read More
