paper accepted – Eur J Pain – congratulations Deb!

Congratulations to Deb, Julie and Chelsea on their paper being accepted to the European Journal of Pain. This was the bulk of Deb’s MSc thesis, examining the relationship between the Rat Grimace Scale and evoked response testing. She showed that the RGS may be a closer reflection of the human pain experience than an evoked response test (mechanical hypersensitivity with von Frey filaments). Julie and Chelsea contributed significantly to data collection during their first summer in the lab.
