Site-dependent and subject-related variations in perioral thermal sensitivity. - Somatosensory & motor research
The Marstock method of limits was used to obtain thresholds for detection of cooling, warming, cold pain and heat pain for 34 young adults, upon eight spatially matched sites on the left and right sides of the face, the right ventral forearm and the scalp. Male and female subjects were tested by both a male and a female experimenter. Neither the experimenter nor the gender of the subject individually influenced the thresholds. The thermal thresholds varied greatly across facial sites: sixfold and tenfold for cool and warmth, respectively, from the most sensitive sites on the vermilion to the least sensitive facial site, the preauricular skin. Warm thresholds were 68% higher than cool thresholds, on average, and 12% higher on the left compared to the right side of the face. The mean cold pain threshold increased from 21.0 degrees C on the hairy upper lip to 17.8 degrees C on the preauricular skin. Sites on the upper lip were also most sensitive to noxious heat with pain thresholds of 42-43 degrees C. The scalp was notably insensitive to innocuous and noxious changes in temperature. For the sensations of nonpainful cool and warmth, the more sensitive a site, the less the estimates of the thresholds differed between subjects. In contrast, for heat pain, the more sensitive a site, the more the estimates differed between subjects. Subjects who were relatively more sensitive to cool tended to be relatively more sensitive to warmth. Subjects' sensitivities to nonpainful cool and warmth were less predictive of their sensitivities to painful cold and heat, respectively. Short-term within-subject variability increased with the magnitude of the thresholds. The lower the threshold, the more similar were repeated measurements of it, within a 5-25 s period.
