The spot where the skin was punctured still hurts, reminding;her to take it easy on her foot. The soreness Terry is experiencing is known as;pain.;pressure;somatic;gate-control;visceral;23);According to gate-control theory;a structure in the spinal cord is closed when pain signals;enter the spinal cord.;when the spinal gates open farther, there is a greater;experience of pain.;pain signals must pass through a "gate" located in;the brain.;the activity of the spinal gate can be opened by nonpain;signals.;24);Motion sickness can be explained by;environmental discord.;an imbalance in the kinesthetic senses.;conflict between visual input and other sensory input.;a type of allergic reaction.;25);can inhibit the transmission of pain signals in the;brain.;Endorphins;Synesthesia;Substance P;Kinesthesia
