OF THE FREEDOM TO FEEL PAIN

With contributions from Ralph Adolphs, Burkhart Bromm, Antonio Damasio, Falk Eippert, Hartmut Göbel, Jürgen Lorenz, Christoph von der Malsburg, Kurt Pawlik, Gerhard Roth, Manfred Stöckler and Rolf-Detlef Treede

We can make our pain more bearable through our will. But how and where does my self (my soul) affect my body? Doctors, neurophysiologists, physicists, philosophers and psychologists show in this book that the dualism we all feel between body and soul does not exist. Both are inseparably a unit, formed over millions of years through the adaptive self-organization of the brain's neuron network. The series: Treatises of the Academy of Sciences in Hamburg In the treatises of the Academy of Sciences in Hamburg, monographs or conference reports from the natural sciences, humanities or social sciences are published in irregular sequence, which are represented in the classless working academy and make a contribution to fundamental problems , on historical or contemporary issues or on socially significant scientific developments.
