(Best Syndication News) - A study from the University of Chicago found that anxiety experienced doing math can cause a person to feel physical pain. The researchers found that the brain areas that register a threat of bodily harm, and in some instances physical pain, are activated when people are stressed over math problems.

Sian Beilock, professor of psychology at the University of Chicago, said that the brain response of a person suffering from math anxiety is similar to someone feeling physical pain. Sian said that the pain could be similar to a burning sensation experienced on a stove.
