Depending on the tissue temperature achieved and the rate of heating, different classes of nociceptors are sequentially recruited (Le Bars et al. 2001; Schepers and Ringkamp 2009; Yeomans and Proudfit 1996; Yeomans et al. 1996). The current standard for heat stimulation in rodents is the radiant heat paw withdrawal assay, with response latency as the readout (Hargreaves et al. 1988).

Great individual and strain differences were noted both in pain behavior and corticosterone response.
