Abstract

A neurophysiological thesis is proposed for thermal sensitivity that accounts for the disorder in physical processes that is fundamental to temperature. There is likely some form of thermal equilibrium rapidly established between thermoreceptors and the external environment local to those thermoreceptors that accounts for gauging the temperature accurately within a certain range.
