Scientists have known that insects could sense pain, however it has known been shown that insects experience what we describe as chronic pain.⠀
Researchers damaged a nerve in one leg of a fly, allowed it to fully heal, then noticed how the other legs had become hypersensitive.⠀
They found that after the injury, some inhibitory neurons that control pain in the nerve cord (the fly’s version of our spinal cord) are killed forever. Then the rest of the animal doesn’t have brakes on its pain. The pain threshold changes and now they are hypervigilant to pain. ⠀
