Holding hands can sync brainwaves, ease pain, study shows

A new study by a pain researcher shows that when a romantic partner holds hands with a partner in pain, their brain waves sync and her pain subsides.






Reach for the hand of a loved one in pain and not only will your breathing and heart rate synchronize with theirs, your brain wave patterns will couple up too, according to a study published this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).

The results of this study make it that much sadder that our modern technology is removing more and more of the direct human element from our communications and interactions.
