Human Nervous System Electrical Metrology

is a new field for me and I am very reluctant to make any sweeping generalizations after studying something for 4 hours.

For example, here is a link to a great article that discusses fun sounding things like "Patch Clamping", one of the methods used to get measurement tools close to Human Neurons, and the opportunity to measure their activity, usually electrical.

Since Human Neural Activity is Neuro-Chemical as well as Electrical,
the desire to see, witness, quantify, and accurately describe Human Neural Activity implies an instrument that does not only measure electrical state, but also chemical state, of the DUT.

DUT = Device under Test.

In this case, DUT = parts of a Living Human Body.

The objective is to measure Nerve Activity associated with the Sensation of Pain.

There are 1.1 Million Doctors in the US.

The brain doctors have Electro-Encephalography, the Heart Doctors have Electro-Cardiography (and the term
Electro-physiology is normally used in the context of the study of Heart function.)

How many of the other Doctors - and their Patients - would benefit from an Instrument to measure Pain ?
