n. an experiment conducted to localize those areas on the skin which are sensitive to thermal stimuli. There are specific spots on the skin's surface that are more responsive to sensations of heat or cold, and these are induced by temperature. First published by Swedish physiologist Magnus Blix in 1881-82.
