Abstract

We used the Computer Assisted Sensory Examination (CASE IV) and a new, rapid 4, 2, and 1 stepping algorithm to determine the influence of local temperature on vibratory detection threshold (VDT) in the great toe of 11 healthy adult subjects. We found that over a broad range of temperatures, VDT did not vary much. A large cooling offset resulted in a small increase in VDT, but warming did not change VDT significantly.
