What Hurts the Most? Mechanical Stimulation Made Easy with the 300C-I

During this Tech Cast, Chris Rand from Aurora Scientific discusses the 300C-I Dual-Mode Indenter, an automated electronic von Frey device used in pain research and neuroscience experiments. Chris highlights the specific hardware components, how they work, and the common experimental applications. He also covers the different tube extensions and tips that can be used to provide different areas of stimulation for varying applications. For each common application, Chris shows the execution of each stimulation event with the indenter and the resulting traces in a software demonstration.
