    Stimulus selection procedures are of importance for adequate psychophysical nociceptive threshold estimation. Various stimulus selection procedures were analyzed by means of simulations. Precision, bias, efficiency, and time constants of the various stimulus selection procedures were determined in a simulation model wherein a threshold is tracked. A new adaptive stimulus selection procedure based on stochastic stimulus selection is proposed as a nociceptive threshold tracking procedure.
