Caption: An illustrated coronal (frontal) section of the brain depicting areas of the brain which respond to pain, particularly in women. Typical regions of the brain which have demonstrated a response to painful stimuli are the cingulate cortex (top), thalamus (centre), insular cortex (outermost) and hippocampus (bottom). Recent studies have shown greater activity in the cingulate cortex in women responding to pain, compared to men. Some functions of the cingulate cortex are to modify emotional responses or regulate impulse control, blood pressure and heart rate.
