Table 2 presents Pearson product-moment correlations between mean QAQ and RPES scores.
Among the total sample, the highest rated subscale on the QAQ (Chang, 1996) was Value, whereas the lowest rated subscale was Efficacy.
Correlations between the QAQ scales and the CACREP (2009) RPES were moderately positive, but statistically significant nonetheless.

The ion channel targeted by the lidocaine-like end of QAQ responds to heat by allowing positively charged sodium ions to pass into the cells that express it.
In their experiments, the researchers exploited the fact that QAQ can percolate through endogenous ion channels to get the molecule into nerve cells.
Furthermore, the lidocaine-like end of QAQ binds to this site only if the molecule is in an extended conformation.
