An unfortunate trivialization 

Paul Ingraham ARCHIVEDMicroblog posts are archived and rarely updated. In contrast, most long-form articles on PainScience.com are updated regularly over the years.

“The labeling of nociceptors as pain fibers was not an admirable simplification, but an unfortunate trivialization under the guise of simplification.” — Patrick Wall, 1986 (“The relationship of perceived pain to afferent nerve impulses”). Context and more for that quote in a good, short article by Moseley, “Teaching people about pain: why do we keep beating around the bush?”

This is the MICROBLOG: small posts about interesting stuff that comes up while I’m updating & upgrading dozens of featured articles on PainScience.com. Follow along on Twitter, Facebook, or RSS. Sorry, no email subscription option at this time, but it’s in the works.
