A pain is coming? Uncertainty intensifies brain activity and influences perception

- EN - NL- FR
The perception of pain is a crucial signal that allows us to protect our body integrity. On the other hand, when a pain persists over time, the brain must learn to predict its evolution in order to limit the risk of injury.
