pain centers?

Is there a particular location in the brain considered to
be a "pain center", or is the interpretation  of signals
that originate from injury distributed? Also, is there
some pathway for such signals different from that traveled by more normal
sensory signals, and, whether or not it is separate, could
damage to such a pathway cause normal signals to be
interpreted as pain through some sort of modulation or
distortion?

Any replies would be greatly appreciated as would pointers to
the literature.

Thanks,
Frank Boyle
