Details

Our bodies receive information about our internal state and the external environment through our sensory system. Touch, thermal, and pain stimuli, for example, are processed by this complex system. Specialized receptors detect stimuli and convert information into a neural code interpreted as sensation. The interpretation can be affected by the nervous system, as well as by surgery, medication, and the power of the mind. Pain explores the workings of the somatosensory and pain systems, how disorders can affect the way we process information, and how pain can be treated.
