In the birchmouse, Sicista betulina , electrical activity of the brain was recorded at an oral temperature as low as 2.5°C. At body temperatures below about 10°C the activity consisted of bursts of slow waves separated by silent intervals. On increasing body temperature during the arousal this pattern was gradually replaced by activity of higher frequency until a normal electroencephalogram was recorded at about 30°C. No typical desynchronization of the EEG in response to sensory stimulation… CONTINUE READING
