Here is a nice video about neurones. That this sort of thing is popping up here and there is one of the reasons I think the internet is marvellous. I don’t always think that of course, but I think TEDEd does truly bring together some clever people to make education more fun, more effective and more available.

I am not sure that all the language in this video is consistent with how I understand the nervous system as it relates to pain, but I would welcome any and all comments on it. Specifically, should we, as pain clinicians and scientists, be embracing that which TEDEd embraces to more effectively reconceptualise pain? I suspect so.

So many exciting projects, so little time. Now that I am sleeping at night instead of listening to the National Anthems of USA, China and Great Britain (in that order), I might have some more night-time to think about how we can Explain Pain better. All serious suggestions and most silly ones welcome…..
