- n. Plural form of nocebo.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Some studies have shown the effect of "nocebos," which patients are told their treatments might increase discomfort.
Some patients are more prone to worrying about side effects and researching them, in which case a discussion of nocebos might be helpful.
Research deliberately causing nocebos has been limited (after all, it's kind of cruel).
