Abstract

All pains have causes. The most common cause is the presence of tissue that has been damaged by injury or disease. The brain must receive signals announcing the existence of such damage. These signals must also contain information about the location, extent, and nature of the damage. Here, we will first examine how these signals are generated in damaged tissue and transmitted to the brain and spinal cord.
