Emotional or stress-induced hyperthermia (SIH) is the rise of body temperature following exposure to psychological stress and has been demonstrated across species. In the present experiments we used exposure to an open field (OF) as inescapable stressor. Exposure of male BL6/C57J mice to OF stress significantly increased body temperature (DeltaT = 1.8 +/- 0.13 degrees C, p < 0.05). SIH is calculated as the difference (DeltaT = T (2) - T (1)) between the basal temperature (T (1)) and the… CONTINUE READING
