The temperature dependence of different indices of axonal excitability (threshold, latency, refractoriness, supernormality, strength-duration time constant, and rheobase) was studied for cutaneous afferents of 8 healthy human volunteers using threshold tracking. Cooling from approximately 32 - approximately 22 degrees C dramatically increased the threshold for a conditioned potential evoked during the relatively refractory period (average increase 573%) but had little effect on the threshold… CONTINUE READING
