Pain Neurotags– Human AntiGravity Suit

A pain neurotag has to do with our brains’ representations of pain.  Individual people process pain differently, and many different factors affect how our brains process and store memories of painful events.

I thought this was a great post from Human AntiGravity Suit on how two professional athletes might experience and store memories of injuries differently.  The injury that appears more “serious” to the outside world might not be the injury that is the more devastating in the long run.
