Description

This book is intended as a source of basic information about the perception and alleviation of pain in animals. It is especially useful for scientific investigators working in this area; for veterinarians interested in the health and welfare of animals, the assessment of pain during surgery, and the alleviation of pain; and for individuals involved in federal, state, and local regulation of the use of animals in research and education. Reflecting the results of a 1982 landmark symposium on animal pain sponsored in part by the American Physiological Society, this outstanding reference covers such topics as peripheral, supraspinal, segmental, and neurophysiological mechanisms involved in pain; spinal cord pathways and control systems; stimulation analgesia and endorphins; behavioral mechanisms for assessing pain; and the phylogenetic evaluation of pain expression in animals.show more
