Hypothalamic thermosensitivity and regulation of heat storage behavior in a day-active desert rodentAmmospermophilus nelsoni

Abstract

1. The characteristics of hypothalamic thermosensitivity ofAmmospermophilus nelsoni were determined at three ambient temperatures by manipulating the temperature of the hypothalamus with chronically implanted, water-perfused thermodes while continuously measuring metabolic rate (Figs. 1, 2, and 3). 2. Hypothalamic thermosensitivity as measured by the… (More)
