    Detailed Information:
    Scientists╣ have proposed criteria that should be met before an animal is capable of pain perception:

    the animal should have the apparatus to detect and process pain
    pain should result in adverse changes in behaviour and physiology
    analgesics (pain killers) should reduce these responses
    the animal should learn to avoid the stimulus that caused pain

    Accounts of research in these pages meet these standards.
