Chronic pain research delves into brain: New insight into how brain responds to pain

New insights into how the human brain responds to chronic pain could
eventually lead to improved treatments for patients, researchers say.
Chronic pain is common throughout the world. More than 100 million
Americans are believed to be affected by chronic pain. "People living
with chronic headache and other forms of chronic pain may experience
reduced quality of life, as the pain often prevents them from working,
amongst other things. It is therefore imperative that we understand the
causes of chronic pain, not just attempt to treat the symptoms with
medication," the lead author said.
