Activity 5.1.3: Hurts So Good Introduction Unfortunately, we have all most likely felt pain. From small aches to immeasurable agony, pain is a part of life. Feeling pain is a result of the coordinated action of pain receptors throughout the body and the nervous system. Signals make their way from the outside to the inside to register damage and injury. But what would life be like if you could feel no pain? Your first reaction might be one of excitement or joy, but when you really stop and think about it, pain is vital to our survival. How do these aches and pains actually protect the human body? In this activity, you will investigate the physiology of pain in the human body. You will view a video clip that illustrates how and why your body allows you to feel pain, as well as how and why your body can actually keep you from feeling pain. In what ways does pain protect the amazing human? How would the body be affected if it never registered a single ounce of pain?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
