Correlations between behavioral temperature adaptations of goldfish and the viscosity and fatty acid composition of their synaptic membranes
Summary1.Goldfish acclimated either to 5 °C or to 25 °C were transferred to the opposite temperature and the changes in behavioral resistance to high temperature, the fluidity and fatty acidExpand

Molecular aspects of temperature acclimation in fish: contributions of changes in enzyme activities and isozyme patterns to metabolic reorganization in the green sunfish.
Spectrophotometric and electrophoretic techniques were used to monitor qualitative and quantitative aspects of changes in 12 enzymes from five different tissues of green sunfish after thermalExpand

The role of nervous systems in temperature adaptation of poikilotherms.
Integration of the many observations on the role of nervous systems into a logical framework relating to temperature adaptation requires several definitions. Two categories of physiologicalExpand

ACETYLCHOLINE AND NERVOUS INHIBITION IN THE HEART OF VENUS MERCENARIA
The heart of Venus is sensitive to acetylcholine in dilutions of 10–12 during the spring and 10–9 during the fall. It is useful as a test material for acetylcholine assay.Acetylcholine appears toExpand

Effects of cold and heat on behavior and cerebellar function in goldfish
SummaryA similar sequence of behavioral effects was observed for either cooling or heating; most effects occurred on changing temperature of entire fish or of only the cerebellum. On moderate heatingExpand
