The posterior hypothalamus (PH) is involved in the generation of behavioral thermoregulatory responses, but the importance of the PH in the control of autonomic thermoregulatory responses such as heat production in brown adipose tissue (BAT) is not well defined. In the present study, selective stimulation of PH neurons by local application of the excitatory amino acid glutamate (250 nl of 1 M solution, unilaterally) caused a sharp, transient increase in interscapular BAT (IBAT) and core… CONTINUE READING
