Pain - empathy

Brain pain

Some people claim to actually feel the pain of others but can it be true? A new study measured brain activity in a group of subjects who viewed images of several painful situations. Almost one third of the subjects said that at least once they not only had an emotional reaction but also had a momentary sensation of pain in the same site of the body where the injury occurred. These people were labelled “responders” and when compared them to non-responders they showed greater activity in pain related regions in the brain. “Responders” also tended to say that they avoided horror movies and disturbing images in the news. There is a chance that this discovery may help explain “functional pain” which occurs in the absence of disease or injury. It also means that when some people say, “I feel your pain,” it can be literally true.Meanwhile if you visit Meijer Ad that contains mostly likewise discounts with Winn Dixie Ad you surely have a range like ALDI Ad.
