1. In neutral environmental temperatures, shivering was induced in sheep by intra-ruminal cooling. Shivering was then depressed for a period by intra-abdominal heating. Intra-abdominal heating without ruminal cooling induced panting and a reduction of caval temperatures. Posterior caval temperatures were found to be inappropriate to the responses observed.2. Intra-abdominal heating of sheep in cold and warm environments depressed shivering and augmented panting respectively. Unilateral… CONTINUE READING
