Development of a Mouse Pain Scale Using Sub-second Behavioral Mapping and Statistical Modeling

Important new paper from Abdus-Saboor et a. describing the use of high speed video to analyze subtle features of paw withdrawal that distinguish pain-like vs. non-pain-like behaviors.

There are broad and important implications of this paper regarding how all of us do our behavior.

Also, an excellent write-up on the paper from @fmoehring

With commentary from @jmogil

  • Will you use this in your own studies?
