Brain hyperthermia as physiological and pathological phenomena

  title={Brain hyperthermia as physiological and pathological phenomena},
  author={Eugene A Kiyatkin},
  journal={Brain Research Reviews},
Although brain metabolism consumes high amounts of energy and is accompanied by intense heat production, brain temperature is usually considered a stable, tightly "regulated" homeostatic parameter. Current research, however, revealed relatively large and rapid brain temperature fluctuations (3-4 degrees C) in animals during various normal, physiological, and behavioral activities at stable ambient temperatures. This review discusses these data and demonstrates that physiological brain… CONTINUE READING
