Exciting and physical pain harm the like means

Memories of overwhelming heartbreaks emerge to activate a movement in the brain, which is like to when people undergo physical pain. The kind you obtain from selling with other people and physical pain.

Each member asserted to feel rejected whenever they thought about their breakup. During the physical pain task, a thermal stimulation device was attached to participants left forearm. On some trials the probe delivered a painful but tolerable stimulation akin to holding a very hot cup of coffee. On other trials it delivered non-painful, warm stimulation.

Participants performed all tasks while undergoing functional magnetic resonance imaging scans. It was found that powerfully inducing feelings of social rejection activate regions of the brain that are involved in physical pain sensation, which are rarely activated in neuron imaging studies of emotion. These findings are consistent with the idea that the experience of social rejection or social loss more generally, may represent a distinct emotional experience that is uniquely associated with physical pain.

The recent cram is the first known to found that there is neural overlap between both of these experiences in brain regions that become active when people experience painful sensations in their body. The findings might offer a new insight into how the experience of intense social loss may lead to various physical pain symptoms and disorders.
