Pain and Perception: A Closer Look at Why We Hurt
This fun and visually engaging read provides a better understanding of pain, helping readers respond to it more effectively.
What can illusions teach us about pain? Is what we see, hear, and feel as simple as it appears to be? The modern science of perception has unearthed new ways to think about pain—as a multi-sensory and multi-factorial phenomenon. Leading pain researchers, Dan Harvie and Lorimer Moseley, walk us through this science by interacting with illusions that challenge our assumptions on how perception actually works. A visually stunning, fun, and accessible read to help anyone better understand and respond to pain.
