"We have traveled a long way from the psychophysical concept that seeks a simple one-to-one relationship between injury and pain. We now have a theoretical framework in which a genetically determined template for the body-self is modulated by the powerful stress system and the cognitive functions of the brain, in addition to the traditional sensory inputs."
"The neuromatrix theory of pain—which places genetic contributions and the neural-hormonal mechanisms of stress on a level of equal importance with the neural mechanisms of sensory transmission—has important implications for research and therapy."

In this New England Journal of Medicine paper researchers describe a method of identifying and perhaps measuring pain states within the brain. This extends Melzak's landmark paper Pain and Neuromatrix in the Brain.
