Editor’s Note: We are pleased to announce Q & A, a new Forums feature that will give PRF members and readers the opportunity to ask the community for answers to questions on their mind. These queries can cover experimental techniques, clinical care, the sharing of unpublished data—anything you would like the community to weigh in on. The aim of Q & A is to accelerate research and spread knowledge by increasing dialogue between all types of pain scientists, clinicians, and even patients with chronic pain.
PRF thanks Steve Davidson, University of Cincinnati, US, for suggesting and helping us to develop this new feature—and for posting the first question below. We also thank Jeffrey Petruska, University of Louisville, US, for posting the next question (see here).
Send us your replies to Q & A by leaving a comment below.
The middle chamber in place preference boxes creates a neutral space in which time spent is difficult to interpret. Since almost all boxes I have seen have middle spaces, I am curious about the advantages and disadvantages of this chamber and its necessity.
