Change the Brain; Relieve the Pain; Transform the Person

One nerve cell fires another with enough intensity or for long enough that the second nerve cell continues to fire long past stimulation by the first nerve cell. This is called Long-term potentiation. While this process is very useful for memory, it is also one of the factors that causes pain to last long past its usefulness.
