There were presented data on some studies, devoted to the problems of pain and analgesia in the neonatal period. The peculiarities were considered, as well as their morphological and functional immaturity compared to adults, so specific features of pain reactions of newborn, demanding special approaches to explanation of pain mechanisms and analgesia.
