Pain is an Output of the Brain

A recent NPR article on pain that takes current evidence & science into account.

I would only add that the title can be misleading as some may interpret the phrase "all in your head" as purely psychological or imagined.

Sensing pain is an output of the brain but is very much "real" and not 100% psychosomatic!
