Inexpensive Tail Flick Analgesia Meter

Design Plans for an Inexpensive Tail Flick Analgesia Meter is a journal article which provides the information required to construct an inexpensive tail flick analgesia meter.

The article provides details of the materials required, how to construct, test and ultimately utilise the meter in student laboratory sessions. The costs of construction are 10x than commercially available alternatives, the meter is easy to use and generates reliable data.

It was developed by Dr Otto and colleagues, Centenary College of Louisiana, USA and is published in the Journal of Undergraduate Neuroscience Education (Otto A et al. (2011) JUNE 10 (1): A80-A84). Copyright is retained by the journal.

This resource can be used in undergraduate student laboratories.
