Title:
[Contact heat evoked potentials for the evaluation of pain pathways] 
Abstract:
Pain evoked potentials offer a possibility for the evaluation of nociceptive pathways. Contact heat evoked potentials (CHEPS) represent a novel technique allowing to investigate peripheral pain pathways represented by small-diameter nerve fibers (A-delta and C fibers) and to study the spinothalamic tract. In contrast to more time-consuming methods such as quantitative sensory testing, CHEPS enables an objective investigation of pain pathways. This article reviews and discusses the technique, pos...    »
