Electromyographic recordings were made in healthy volunteers from the knee-flexor biceps femoris muscle of the nociceptive RIII reflex elicited by electrical stimulation of the cutaneous sural nerve. The stimulus intensity was adjusted to produce a moderate pricking-pain sensation. The test responses were conditioned by a nonnoxious thermal (</=40 degrees C) stimulus applied to the receptive field of the sural nerve. This stimulus was delivered by a CO2 laser stimulator and consisted of a 100… CONTINUE READING
