Pleasure and pain

Pain and pleasure, are they that different after all? Morten L. Kringelbach and Irene Tracey discuss the neuroscience of these seemly opposing sensations.

Research into the neuroscience of pain and pleasure has only just begun to untangle how they act upon us. What was once thought to be two opposing sensations delivered by distinct networks in the nervous system is in fact much more complex, with pain and pleasure pathways having much in common. In the first part of the talk, Prof Morten L. Kringelbach discusses pleasure and in the second, Prof Irene Tracey looks at pain.
