1. The temperature of the spinal cord (T vc) was measured in unanaesthetized pigeons at different ambient temperatures (T a). 2. In short-term experiments spontaneous or noncyclic variations ofT vc at constant (20 and 10°C) and changingT a were correlated with the amplitude of the electromyogram (EMG) which indicates shivering, i.e., heat production. At constantT a no unequivocal correlation betweenT vc (and alsoT skin) and EMG was found. During ambient cooling there was often an increase ofT… CONTINUE READING
