Whisker Nuisance Test: A Valuable Tool to Assess Tactile Hypersensitivity in Mice
Authors:  Luigi Balasco, Gabriele Chelini, Yuri Bozzi and Giovanni Provenzano, date: 08/20/2019, view: 2662, Q&A: 0
Abnormal response to tactile stimulation, described as both hyper- and hypo-reactivity, is a common sensory impairment in multiple neuropsychiatric disorders. The neural bases of tactile sensitivity remain so far unknown. In the last years, animal ...
