Worse, when we do want to find a video clip, it’s lost among thousands of others.
Anton Simulations Reveal How Pain, Epilepsy Drugs Work through Same Target ProteinProteins & Life Sciences
If you tried to imagine two neurological conditions as different from each other as possible, epilepsy and non-headache pain would be a good choice.

Pain is a matter of sensation, when damage to tissues or other causes activate pain-sensitive nerves in the skin or other peripheral parts of the body, far from the brain.
