I recently rewatched Live at the Acropolis when I had covid a few months ago. It’s still so good!

I used to pretend to the the conductor when I was a kid watching it.

This depends on the sensation being transmitted to the brain. Some nerves travel at hundreds of metres per second (A-delta fibres), others travel at only 2 m/s (C-fibres).

The distance to the brain will impact the time taken for the sensation to be delivered to the brain. But it’s usually imperceptible because the signals are so quick.

Nociception (noxious stimulus) carried by C-fibres, are integrated in the thalamus and modulated by pro and anti-nociceptive areas of the brain, which can delay your perception of pain.
