Caption: An illustrated coronal (frontal) section of the brain, depicting areas of the brain which respond to pain, particularly in men. Typical regions of the brain, highlighted in red, which have demonstrated a response to painful stimuli are the thalamus (centre), insular cortex (outermost), cingulate cortex (top) and hippocampus (bottom). Recent studies have shown greater activity in the right and left hippocampus in men responding to pain, compared to women. The hippocampus has been known to respond to severe long-term traumatic stress.
