 The influence of stimulus temperature rise rate (2.5ºC/s, 5.0ºC/s, and 10.0ºC/s), adapting (baseline) temperature (25ºC, 30ºC, and 35ºC), and duration of peak stimulus temperature (1.0 s, 2.5 s, 5.0 s, and 10.0 s) on responses evoked by noxious heat stimuli of suprathreshold intensity was studied in wide dynamic range (WDR) neurons of the rat spinal dorsal horn. The spinal neuronal responses were compared with human psychophysical data obtained using the same stimuli. Noxious heat stimuli with… CONTINUE READING
