Abstract

Pain usually occurs as a result of tissue damage and has a role in healing and protection. However, in certain conditions it has no functional purpose and can become chronic and debilitating. A demand for more effective treatments to deal with this highly prevalent problem requires a better understanding of the underlying mechanisms. TRP channels are associated with numerous sensory functions across a wide range of species. Investigation into the expression patterns, electrophysiological properties and the effects of channel deletion in transgenic animal models have produced a great deal of evidence linking these channels to transduction of noxious stimuli as well as signalling within the pain system.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 08 July 2014.
All research outputs
#3,056,964
of 4,507,509 outputs
Outputs from Handbook of experimental pharmacology
#141
of 225 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#72,405
of 109,072 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Handbook of experimental pharmacology
#1
of 2 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 4,507,509 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 20th percentile – i.e., 20% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 225 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.7. This one is in the 28th percentile – i.e., 28% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 109,072 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 23rd percentile – i.e., 23% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 2 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
