I think after this semester, the one thing I have learned is that neuroplasticity is awesome. Okay, yes, that’s the inner biological dork in me saying that. But I must say, it’s amazing how things are interpreted by your brain, especially pain. Did you know that pain isn’t actually a ‘feeling’ but rather a perception? We don’t actually have “pain receptors” but rather pain is when there is tissue damage. But sometimes, it can get way out of control, and that’s when it becomes chronic. Anyways, I should get back to studying, but I thought I would share this neat little video with you guys! Understanding pain in five minutes!! Enjoy =)
