Pure water consumption was measured at baseline. Then, to ascertain pain threshold, increasing amounts of capsaicin were added to drinking water. Consumption of those concentrations was measured and is expressed as a percent of the baseline pure water consumption. Mice had no other source of drinking water.

Summary of procedures that were conducted
• nociception assay Capsaicin intake at several concentrations.
