Role of the Thyroid in Metabolic Responses to a Cold Environment1

Abstract

T HE exposure of most warm blooded animals to a cold environment gives rise to a number of apparently related metabolic phenomena. An increase in metabolic rate as measured by oxygen consumption, takes place very rapidly and in the rat at a temperature just above freezing; the rate may reach a level two or three times that observed at the critical… (More)
