To investigate the mechanism involved in the reduction of body core temperature (T(core)) during fasting in rats, which is selective in the light phase, we measured T(core), surface temperature, and oxygen consumption rate in fed control animals and in fasted animals on day 3 of fasting and day 4 of recovery at an ambient temperature (T(a)) of 23 degrees C by biotelemetry, infrared thermography, and indirect calorimetry, respectively. On the fasting day, 1) T(core) in the light phase decreased… CONTINUE READING
