The next time you're feeling in pain, skip the trip to the chemist and reach for the hand of your loved one. That's the advice from new research fresh out of the University of Colorado Boulder. The paper supports a growing field of research into ‘interpersonal synchronisation', a theory that suggests we take on the characteristics and physiological functioning of our partners.

"We have developed a lot of ways to communicate in the modern world and we have fewer physical interactions," said Pavel Goldstein, a postdoctoral pain researcher in the Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience Lab at the University. "This paper illustrates the power and importance of human touch."
