    Estimating momentary perception thresholds cannot reveal dynamic properties of underlying mechanisms. However, continuously estimating multiple thresholds can. This talk focussed on the possibility of tracking multiple thresholds over time. A cold pressor model was used to activate descending nociceptive pathways, and a capsaicin defunctionalization model was used to induce nociceptive peripheral changes.
