"In a new study using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), researchers have found that the same brain networks that are activated when you're burned by hot coffee also light up when you think about a lover who has spurned you.In other words, the brain doesn't appear to firmly distinguish between physical pain and intense emotional pain.
