Everything that we perceive from our environment and from our subjective experience is passed on to our brain as stimuli: for example, movement stimuli from the muscles, sensory stimuli such as hearing and pain stimuli.

This film was developed to illustrate the extremely complex processes of pain transmission and pain processing in the brain. The film outlines what happens in the brain with acute pain and how this is different with chronic pain.The film is aimed at children, adolescents and young adults with chronic pain, as well as their families, friends and practitioners from primary to tertiary care.
