Abstract

Measuring well-being may benefit from increasingly sophisticated methodologies such as autonomic markers. Psychology provides data and tools related to the emotional factor in well-being processes. This chapter depicts the importance of affective and sensorial pain on the basis of 25 years of Mexican experience on the clinical study of pain.

Keywords
