brain is able to feel the others person's pain


Have you ever felt as if the pain is being felt someone else? Your feelings may be right. A study using brain imaging to show, some people have the ability to feel the pain suffered by others.

By using brain imaging techniques MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), researchers from the UK found evidence that people who say they experience pain as other people in fact do so.

MRI examination of the unknown, the brain activity that serves the pain increases when people are watching other people in pain or injured. The ability to feel pain is referred to as functional illness.

"People who have functional pain experience pain even though he was not physically injured or illness," said Dr Stuart Derbyshire of the University of Birmingham, one of the researchers in this study.

Derbyshire henceforth study to determine whether people who are able to feel pain also have a functional response as if he saw pictures of people injured.

In his research he asked 108 volunteers to watch some of photographs of people in pain situations, such as athletes who suffered injuries during the game or the person being injected. Nearly a third of participants admitted they were not only experiencing emotional reactions but also feel the pain as seen in the picture.

Based on the MRI finding out whether the changes in blood circulation in the brain and the brain areas that respond to pain are also more active when respondents looking at photos of people in pain situation. Also note also that the functional brain activity in terms of emotion seemed more active.

"We feel the results of the study was a proof enough that some people do feel a physical reaction when watching someone else get hurt or in pain," said Derbyshire.
