UNLABELLED In animal studies, thermal sensitivity is mostly evaluated on the basis of nociceptive reaction latencies in response to a given thermal aversive stimulus. However, these techniques may be inappropriate to differentiate allodynia from hyperalgesia or to provide information differentiating the activation of nociceptor subtypes. The recent development of dynamic hot and cold plates, allowing computer-controlled ramps of temperature, may be useful for such measures. In this study, we… CONTINUE READING
