Sensory tests in octopus

- Researchers test the behavioral responses of octopuses to touches of increasing force on different body areas. This helps distinguish behaviors that are simple nociceptive reflexes from those that could indicate pain. Scientists hope to identify which types of stimuli are noxious to octopuses, which will help us protect their welfare in future. ()
