Figure 4

Sensory profiles in the hearing impaired cohort (n = 36). The z-values were normalized for gender on the z-scale. The z-scores for each deaf subject are represented as dot and box plots. Z-scores between 1.96 and −1.96 represent the normal range of healthy controls (n = 111). Z-scores > 0 indicate increased sensitivity to presented stimuli or in case of pain stimuli, lowered pain threshold. Z-scores < 0 indicate decreased sensitivity to presented stimuli, or in case of pain stimuli, higher pain threshold. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001, ANOVA. CDT, cold detection threshold; CPT, cold pain threshold; HPT, heat pain threshold; MDT, mechanical detection threshold; MPT, mechanical pain threshold; WDT, warm detection threshold.
