Catalog type History
Provenance Dr. Ronald Dubner was chief of the Neurobiology and Anesthesiology Branch, NIDR (now NIDCR) from 1971-1996. This lab was the first and most productive pain research laboratory at the NIH and one of the most productive in the world. Dubner oversaw Raymond Dionne and Edward Driscoll's experiments in dental analgesia; Stephen Gobel's electron microscopy studies of the trigeminal system; Richard Gracely's verbal descriptor scales for pain assessment; Mitchell Max's trials of tricyclic antidepressants for neuropathic pain; Gary Bennett's development of the constriction injury/chronic pain rat model for the study of neuropathic pain; Michael Iadarola's pioneering work on the molecular biology of pain response; and M.A. Ruda's experiments on gender differences in pain and the effects of pain on neonatal development. Dubner's own research included awake behaving animal experiments.
