Nociception is an important sensory system of major fundamental and clinical relevance. The nociceptive system of higher vertebrates is well studied with a wealth of information about nociceptor properties, involvement of the central nervous system and the in vivo responses to a noxious experience are already characterised. However, relatively little is known about nociception in lower vertebrates and this review brings together a variety of studies to understand how this information can inform… Expand
Evolution of nociception and pain: evidence from fish models
  • L. Sneddon
  • Medicine, Biology
  • Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B
  • 2019
TLDR
There is ample evidence to demonstrate that it is highly likely that fish experience pain and that pain-related behavioural changes are conserved across vertebrates. Expand
Fish welfare: Fish capacity to experience pain
TLDR
There is scientific evidence to support the assumption that fish have the capacity to experience pain because they possess functional nociceptors, endogenous opioids and opioid receptors, brain structures involved in pain processing and pathways leading from nocICEptors to higher brain structures. Expand
Nociceptive behavior and physiology of molluscs: animal welfare implications.
TLDR
It is recommended that investigators attempt to minimize the potential for nociceptor activation and painlike sensations in experimental invertebrates by reducing the number of animals subjected to stressful manipulations and by administering appropriate anesthetic agents whenever practicable, welfare practices similar to those for vertebrate subjects. Expand
Nociceptors: a phylogenetic view
TLDR
This review will focus on what is known about nociceptors throughout the Animalia kingdom and what similarities exist across phyla; especially at the molecular level of ion channels. Expand
Pain in aquatic animals

TLDR
How aquatic animals may differ in their neurobiological and behavioural responses to injurious stimuli compared with terrestrial animals is discussed, which has interesting implications for the evolution of pain. Expand
Nociception and Pain in Animals

Recent evidence has shown that fi sh display aversive behavioral and physiological reactions and a suspension of normal behavior in response to noxious stimuli that cause pain in other animals andExpand
The zebrafish as a model for nociception studies
TLDR
The reasons why zebrafish presents a new and attractive model for studying pain reception and responses and the most interesting findings in the study of nociception that have been obtained using the zebra fish model are outlined. Expand
Animal Studies Repository 2015 Pain in Aquatic Animals
Recent developments in the study of pain in animals have demonstrated the potential for pain perception in a variety of wholly aquatic species such as molluscs, crustaceans and fish. This allows usExpand
Comparative Physiology of Nociception and Pain.
TLDR
The comparative biology of nociception and pain from an evolutionary perspective is considered and it is demonstrated that there are consistent physiological mechanisms underpinning the nOCiceptive system. Expand
Do Decapod Crustaceans Have Nociceptors for Extreme pH?
TLDR
There was no behavioural or physiological evidence that the antennae contained specialized nociceptors that responded to pH, and previously reported responses to extreme pH are either not consistently evoked across species or were mischaracterized as nOCiception. Expand

TLDR
This study provides significant evidence of nociception in teleost fishes and demonstrates that behaviour and physiology are affected over a prolonged period of time, suggesting discomfort. Expand

Trigeminal somatosensory innervation of the head of a teleost fish with particular reference to nociception
TLDR
The trigeminal nerve of a teleost fish, the rainbow trout, was examined to determine what types of somatosensory receptors were present on the head of the trout specifically searching for nociceptors, which had similar physiological properties to nocICEptors found in higher vertebrates. Expand
The Evidence for Pain in Fish: The Use of Morphine as an Analgesic
TLDR
Assessing the acute effects of administering a noxious chemical to the lips of rainbow trout concluded that these pain-related behaviours are not simple reflexes and therefore there is the potential for pain perception in fish. Expand

TLDR
The trigeminal nerve in the rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss, was examined for the presence of A-delta and C fibres and electrophysiological recordings of evoked activity from the ganglion confirmed the presence, as well as the potential for nociceptive capability in a lower vertebrate. Expand

TLDR
The results show that the mucosal nociceptors are different from the skin nocICEptors in the frequency distribution of their types and certain physiological properties. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest a distinct separation of sensory modalities in the frog similar to that observed in mammals and indicate the usefulness of this amphibian model in further studies of nociception. Expand

  • 1993
TLDR
The present data showed for the first time the physiological and morphological heterogeneity of the primary trigeminal A‐δ nociceptive neurons and revealed that the subnucleus caudalis and the caudal half subn nucleus interpolaris are the essential relay sites of the primaries supplying the oral mucosa and facial skin.
