  1. QST and heat hyperalgesia (HYP) responses for the capsaicin site at baseline, post-capsaicin and post combined capsaicin/rTMS treatment (CST = cold sensory threshold; HST = heat sensory threshold; CPT = cold pain threshold; HPT = heat pain threshold; HYP- = HPT – 2.5°C; HYP0 = HPT; HYP + = HPT +2.5°C).
