Brain temperatures (Tbr) of male Wistar rats were recorded at every 15 min interval for 24 h, prior to the destruction of the medial septal (MS) neurons with N-methyl-D-aspartic acid, and on the 7th, 14th and 21st days after the destruction. The capacity of the rats to regulate their body temperature under severe cold and heat was assessed by recording their Tbr when they were exposed to 5+/-1 and 37+/-1 degrees C for 2 h, before lesion and on 8th, 9th, 15th, 16th, 22nd and 23rd days after the… CONTINUE READING
