Abstract

Reproducibility and normal Variation of cephalic warm and cold detection thresholds were investigated in three healthy subject groups. The face, the mastoid process, and the hands were studied. No significant intra-observer test-retest difference (n =20) was found. Good reliability (intra-class correlation coefficient [ICC]>0.4) was found for 13 of 14 measurements. A small significant inter-observer difference (n =20) was found for cold thresholds. Good reliability (lCC>0.4) was observed for both cold and warm thresholds in most of the test locations (6of 8). In general, the largest variability was found in the mastoid and frontal lateral regions. Thermal thresholds varied with investigation site in 56 controls (ANOVA, p<0.0005). No significant gender differences were found for cephalic warm and cold thresholds. Most cold thresholds (4 of 5) but also some warm thresholds (2 of 5) increased with age at the cephalic sites. Our results reveal the frontal medial, the maxillar medial, and lateral regions as the most reliable cephalic test locations. The mastoid region may also be useful for investigating the upper cervical small-fiber function.
