Researchers Say Brain Region Responsible for Pain's Ability to Seek Attention

... Researchers identified a brain region called the lateral occipital complex (LOC) as the cognitive-related area affected by both 'working memory load' and pain. The researchers then sought to identify the brain region by which pain affects the functioning of the LOC. The study theorized that the best c...
