PainSci summary of Carney 2015?This page is one of thousands in the PainScience.com bibliography. It is not a general article: it is focused on a single scientific paper, and it may provide only just enough context for the summary to make sense. Links to other papers and more general information are provided at the bottom of the page, as often as possible. ★★★★☆?4-star ratings are for bigger/better studies and reviews published in more prestigious journals, with only quibbles. Ratings are a highly subjective opinion, and subject to revision at any time. If you think this paper has been incorrectly rated, please let me know.

This paper presents and discusses strong evidence that “nonverbal expansiveness” (confidence, openness, happiness, etc) will cause some “embodied psychological changes,” but the details are complex and somewhat controversial (of course).
