In crustaceans the peripheral nervous system seems to have retained the capacity for thermosensitivity and thermal acclimation independently of the central nervous system control of behaviour.
Changes in the aggressiveness of mice resulting from selective breeding, learning and social isolation.
Some neurochemical findings are in agreement with the observed behavioural effects and the effects of grouping is interpreted as social learning of non-aggressive behaviour, the effect of isolation as return of the inter-individually variable aggressiveness level, determined by genetic variation and early experience.

Maturation of the central nervous system and subsequent activation of the endocrines are probably the main factors responsible for the development of thermogenesis and the developmental approach seems to be a suitable method for the analysis of complex cybernetic systems in higher animals.

Breeding studies with one population of wild mice showed that they possessed the gene for resistance to group B arbovirus, and the occurrence of this gene in wild mouse populations may indicate that it can confer selective advantage and is not merely a laboratory artifact.
Thermoregulation in group B arbovirus-resistant and group B arbovirus-susceptible mice.
Temperature acclimation of the functional parameters of the giant nerve fibres in Lumbricus terrestris L. I. Conduction velocity and the duration of the rising and falling phase of action potential.
The duration of the falling phase of the action potential showed the most efficient compensatory acclimation of the parameters studied and the temperature coefficient was lower at all temperatures for the cold-acclimated animals.
