The rat foot withdrawal response to noxious radiant heat has been used as a model of nociception that is particularly useful for measurements of unilateral changes in nociceptive responses. The purpose of these studies was to characterize the foot withdrawal response to graded rates of noxious skin heating. Response latencies and both surface and subsurface temperatures produced by 6 different intensities of radiant heat were measured to determine whether response latency is an appropriate… CONTINUE READING
