Pain perception in relation to emotional learning
A Vania Apkarian
Noninvasive brain imaging has established the participation of
the cortex in pain perception and identified a long list of brain
structures involved. More recent studies show the interaction
between clinical chronic pain conditions and the reorganization
of the brain functionally, anatomically, and chemically.
Mechanisms underlying this reorganization hint to essential
links between pain, especially its affective component with
emotional learning and memory. This review is a discussion of
the rationale and evidence for the interaction between these
modalities, emphasizing underlying mechanisms.
