Look inside the Brain in Real Time
Neuroscientist and inventor Christopher deCharms demos an amazing new way to use fMRI to show brain activity while it is happening — emotion, body movement, pain.

Chronic pain is pain that has lasted for a long time. In medicine, the distinction between acute and chronic pain has traditionally been determined by an arbitrary interval of time since onset; the two most commonly used markers being 3 months and 6 months since onset. A popular alternative definition of chronic pain, involving no arbitrarily fixed duration is “pain that extends beyond the expected period of healing”.
