This Saturday (19) is celebrated the World Faotografia Day. And this research helps show how the photographic record can contribute to health. The research was conducted by the department of psychology at UCLA in Los Angeles, USA, and found that looking at a loved one's photo may be as effective as appealing to painkillers when pain appears. > The study analyzed 25 university students, who showed good relationship with their respective boyfriends in the last 6 months. They received heat stimuli in the forearm and characterized the pain level during three situations: when they looked at pictures of their boyfriends, when they looked at pictures of strangers, and also when they looked at pictures of objects, such as a chair. , women characterized the level of pain while holding the hands of their respective boyfriends, a stranger, and also holding a soft ball for exercise. According to the researchers, the presence of the boyfriend or just his photo provided a reduction in the pain levels of the students. They further suggest that the research results point to the direction of how people's support influences pain and disease.
