The homeostatic responses are largely reactive and reflex, are single-step measures with temporary effects to handle the challenge at hand and are aimed at restoration of a balance or the homeostasis.
Pain signals travel into the brainstem and hypothalamus, which regulate homeostatic responses, and get processed by the insula, representing state-of-me, and anterior cingulate cortex (ACC), responsible for the motivational aspect of pain.
