Studies indicate that classical and operant conditioning have potential to play a role in the formation of the allodynic effect. Only a few studies have examined the role of observational learning in pain induction. Due to some methodological challenges, evidence that the allodynic effect can be learned through observation is limited. In the present study, healthy participants (n = 88) received two series of innocuous electrocutaneous stimuli: at the beginning of the study and after observation of a model who rated all the stimuli as painful. Participants and the model rated all the stimuli alternately (real-time group), or the participant first observed the model and then rated the stimuli, while the model stayed in (post-hoc+ group) or left (post-hoc- group) the laboratory. There was no model in the control group. The study demonstrated that allodynia can be induced by observational learning. Furthermore, this effect was shown to be similar, regardless of whether stimuli were received during the observation of the model and rated immediately afterwards, or when the observation and stimuli reception were time-separated. The mere presence of the model during the stimuli reception also did not affect the magnitude of this effect. This research may contribute to our understanding of the mechanisms of chronic pain development and assist in the development of suitable treatment for it. Perspective. This article presents study results on the role of observational learning in allodynia induction without tissue injury. The results may contribute to our understanding of the mechanisms of chronic pain development and assist in the development of suitable treatment for it.
