Abstract

Modeling visceral pain requires an appreciation of the underlying neurobiology of visceral sensation, including characteristics of visceral pain that distinguish it from pain arising from other tissues, the unique sensory innervation of visceral organs, the functional basis of visceral pain, and the concept of viscero-somatic and viscero-visceral convergence. Further, stimuli that are noxious when applied to the viscera are different than stimuli noxious to skin, muscle, and joints, thus informing model development and assessment. Visceral pain remains an important and understudied area of pain research and basic science knowledge and mechanisms acquired using animal models can translate into approaches that can be applied to the study and development of future therapeutics.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 7. 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 13 July 2016.
All research outputs
#1,150,240
of 8,072,037 outputs
Outputs from Current topics in behavioral neurosciences
#56
of 265 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#52,262
of 258,666 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Current topics in behavioral neurosciences
#3
of 12 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 8,072,037 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 84th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 265 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.9. This one has done well, scoring higher than 77% of its peers.
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 258,666 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 78% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 12 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 75% of its contemporaries.
