Abstract Seminal studies found common activations during social and physical pain and suggested that they were underpinned by the same modality-specific processes. However, recent studies challenged this vision by arguing that those shared activations could be explained alternatively by modality-independent processes and so they could be shared with other unpleasant experiences, as disgust. To better understand those shared processes, we recruited 30 volunteers (M = 21.47 y.o., SD = ± 2.97 y.o.) and asked them to play to a virtual ball-tossing game with four confederates who excluded or included participants in the game. During this task, participants received comparably-unpleasant sensory stimulations (painful or disgusting). We recorded physiological measures and their evaluation of unpleasantness for the sensory stimulation.
