Change the Brain; Relieve the Pain; Transform the Person

This animation shows that when pain nerves fire and shut off, they do not steal nerve cells from neighboring networks involved in Empathy and Self-Soothing. When they demonstrate firing in long term potentiation, they steal nerve cells from the less stimulated Empathy network. At the same time, if the Self-Soothing network is not firing at all, it is taken over by the pain network. The result is that self-soothing becomes a lost function.
