Short days induce changes in specific melatonin binding in hamster median eminence and anterior pituitary
Autoradiography of 125I-melatonin binding to hamster brain sections revealed a competitive 125I-melatonin binding in median eminence only. Saturation studies on crude membrane fraction revealedExpand

Thermoregulation in Winter Swimmers and Physiological Significance of Human Catecholamine Thermogenesis
Thermoregulation in control subjects and cold‐adapted winter swimmers was examined during 1 h of cold water immersion (13°C). It was found that the thermoregulatory functions of winter swimmersExpand

The effects of sex, age and commensal way of life on levels of fecal glucocorticoid metabolites in spiny mice (Acomys cahirinus)
We studied levels of fecal glucocorticoid metabolites (GCM) in a social rodent - Egyptian spiny mouse. As breeding adults are socially dominant over subadults, and adolescent males are driven away byExpand
