Because You Needed To Know

I guess.
Ah, that's the spot: Why scratching brings relief

Thu Jan 31, 1:22 PM ET

CHICAGO (Reuters) - Oh, it brings such blessed relief and now scientists can tell you why -- scratching an itch temporarily shuts off areas in the brain linked with unpleasant feelings and memories.

"Our study shows for the first time how scratching may relieve itch," Dr. Gil Yosipovitch, a dermatologist at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, said in a statement.
Nice. I guess that since there's nothing worthwhile left to study or resolve, someone had to spend time on this.

Good on ya' there, Wake Forest.
