TSA II Neuro Sensory Analyzer

The department of Anesthesia at Stanford University School of Medicine carries out its experiments using the following pain test paradigms: mechanical pain threshold tested with von Frey filaments and heat pain threshold evaluated using TSA II Neuro Sensory Analyzer. These tests together with microdialysis procedures allows the identification of the biochemical responsible of generating and propagating pain signals.
