Pain is a sensation of an unpleasant nature in response to a noxious stimulus. Physiologically, pain has a critical function for survival and represents a major evolutionary advantage. Indeed, a painful experience can act as a warning signal for the organism, thus influencing it to withdraw from a potentially harmful stimulus. One of the main functions of pain is to alert the body to potential injury.
