Influence of housing conditions from weaning to adulthood on the ventilatory, thermoregulatory, and endocrine responses to hypoxia of adult female rats.


Housing conditions affect animal physiology. We previously showed that the hypoxic ventilatory and thermoregulatory responses to hypoxia of adult male rats housed in triads during the juvenile period (postnatal day 21 to adulthood) were significantly reduced compared with animals housed in pairs. Because sex hormones influence development and responsiveness… (More)
