This model posits that 2 neurophysiological systems-the behavioral inhibition system (BIS) sensitized to and activated by punishment cues and the behavioral activation system (BAS) sensitized to and activated by reward cues-make independent and concurrent contributions to 2 domains of pain-related function: pain interference and positive function despite pain.
