Handbook of Perception, Volume VIB: Feeling and Hurting, deals with the perceptual aspects of feeling and pain. The book opens with a discussion of the history of research on feeling. This is followed by separate chapters on the biophysics and psychophysics of feeling; phylogenetic development of feeling; and role of different cerebral structures in somesthetic perception. Subsequent chapters deal with concepts in pain research; the neural mechanisms of pain; perceptual aspects of pain; and human pathological pain.
