Steve:
A fascinating and well written article on a very complex subject. It will take some time to understand how pain is processed by the brain -- the cerebral cortex. Current centrally acting drugs give us some clues -- opioids 'block' pain at the central level; ketamine somehow separates the cognitive level from pain -- dissociation.
