Sodium appetite and preference were examined in four rat strains using a social stressor and drugs to block sympathetic nervous system (SNS) activity. We have studied these strains for over 14 yr in our laboratory and the SHR strain has increased blood pressure and increased sympathetic nerve activity. The F1 crosses produce male offspring with the Y(More)
Previous studies of reptiles and amphibians have shown that changing the body temperature consistently produces transient changes in the respiratory exchange ratio (RE) and, hence, changes in whole-body CO2 stores, and that the extracellular fluid compartment contributes to the temperature-related changes in CO2 stores. The purpose of this study was to(More)
