Feeling of pain when alien hand is stimulated

In the rubber hand illusion patients report pain in alien hand while their own hand is stimulated. In this recent study from +Lorenzo Pia patients reported pain when when the alien hand was stimulated. 

Pain is supercomplex and again – quoting the study, "what clearly emerges from our data is that pain perception is not an all-or-none phenomenon, simply related to the direct bottom-up stimulation of nociceptors, but is intimately connected to the experience of body ownership that, in a top-down manner, may modulate self-consciousness and even personal identity."
