Abstract: Social pain refers to a specific emotional reaction to the perception that one is being excluded from desired relationships or being devalued by desired partners or groups. It has a close relationship with physical pain, and it might be understood in terms of finding out the convergence between two types of pain. This paper introduces the concept, function, psychological correlates and neurophysiological mechanisms of social pain, moreover, discusses its possible research area.

Key words: pain, social pain, physical pain, social rejection
