Machine learning algorithm to assess spontaneous pain


#1

Exciting new paper that automates the assessment of spontaneous pain with the mouse grimace scale. I admit, I’ve been hesitant to adopt the grimace scale because of the learning curve and variability…

Agreed. Looks like only works on albino mice. But it’s an important precedent. I hope we see a lot more of this. Automated video scoring, less user dependence, more relevance to pain than say paw lifts. Thanks for sharing.
