M-21 Detecting pain in laboratory rodents - Do you see what you could see?


It is quite easy for a doctor to find out from his patient whether he/she is in pain or not - the patient can express himself and is usually understood. Our animals also express themselves when they are in pain - but do researchers understand this expression of pain? For example, how does abdominal pain manifest itself in a laboratory mouse? Do you see everything you could (should) see?

In this video-supported workshop, we show how to recognise pain in rodents and what influence pain can have on the animal and on experimental results.
