“The measurement of pain: a new approach to an old problem”. 
J New Drugs. 1962 Nov-Dec 01;2:344-51.
The measurement of pain has eluded accurate appraisal for many years. Assessment of pain is important for three reasons: it is a reflection of the degree of suffering which is important in clinical medicine; it increases the understanding of human behavior in terms of suffering; and it provides a means for evaluating analgesics. Existing methods of measuring pain, numerous as they are, can be divided into four categories: 1) pain threshold and tolerance studies in humans; 2) animals studies; 3) change in vital signs associated with pain; and 4) subjective reports of pain.

Not Psychedelic Related #

Although Kast went on to do research into pain and psychedelics, this paper does not mention psychedelics or LSD.
