Pain-induced vocalization in the rat and its modification by pharmacological agents.


Vocalization was induced in rats by electrical stimulation of the tail (pain-induced vocalization), and its components were characterized in terms of latency, duration, frequency spectrum and energy. Noxious stimuli at threshold elicit a single vocalization component (V1). Increases in stimulus intensity produce additional discrete vocalization components… (More)
