  1. aFrontal-now = frontal area indicated as presently painful; bDorsal-now = dorsal area indicated as presently painful; cVASnow = visual analogue scale score of present pain; dVASmin = visual analogue scale score of minimal pain; eVASmax = visual analogue scale score of maximal pain; fPRIS = MPQ pain rating index (sensory); gPRIA = MPQ pain rating index (affective); hPRIE = MPQ pain rating index (evaluative); iSFpain = pain score measured by SF20; jSFtotal = total of SF20 subscales physical functioning, role fulfillment, social functioning, mental health, and perceived health; kBIPQimpact = sum of BIPQ consequence, identity, concern, and emotional response; lBIPQcognition = sum of BIPQ treatment control and coherence.
