OBJECTIVE The method of limits (MLI) and the method of levels (MLE) are psychophysical stimulus procedures most commonly applied to quantify warm and cold sensation thresholds in humans. This paper evaluates basic methodological properties of both methods and investigates the correspondence between the method's results. METHODS Warm sensation threshold was measured in 20 healthy participants using the psychophysical MLIs and MLEs. Two differently shaped kind of levels stimuli were used with… CONTINUE READING
