Any comments on why brain feels the pain who voted 'YES', and why the brain does not who voted for 'NO'?

If the Broadmann area (Sensory input fields: 3,1, 2) in the parietal lobe and intra-cranial pain sensation carrying fibres are intact, I think brain should be perceiving pain due to brain injury. (But again the extent of damage to the brain should also be taken into account)

The brain itself has no sensory nerve endings. So if just your scalp and the outer covering of the brain were numb you would not feel it if your brain got cut.

I got this answer from:

I voted 'yes'. Brain consists of nervous tissue, blood vessels aswell as the meninges. Though the nervous tissue as such does not have any pain receptors inside it, there are still pain receptors inside the blood vessel membrane and the meninges. Thus the assumption went that if the 'brain' is injured then there could be pain perceived ( hopefully if the patient dint go into a comma or a large area of brain is injured or damaged do that the pain or any other sensation is no longer perceived).

And if one takes into account only the brain neural tissue, then there could be no pain felt if it is injured.
