Handholding analgesia

“Our findings indicate that hand-holding during pain administration increases brain-to-brain coupling in a network that mainly involves the central regions of the pain target and the right hemisphere of the pain observer. Moreover, brain-to-brain coupling in this network was found to correlate with analgesia magnitude and observer’s empathic accuracy. These findings indicate that brain-to-brain coupling may be involved in touch-related analgesia.”

” Nos résultats indiquent que tenir la main pendant la douleur augmente le couplage cerveau-cerveau qui est lui-même corrélé à l’amplitude de l’analgésie et à l’empathie du partenaire, assurent les auteurs. Ces résultats apportent une contribution unique à notre compréhension des mécanismes physiologiques de l’analgésie liée au toucher.”
