Selected ambient temperatures of rats acclimated to heat given on various schedules


We investigated the behavioral thermoregulation of heat-acclimated rats by measuring their selected ambient temperatures (T s). Rats kept in a light:dark cycle of 12:12 h were subjected to one of four different heat exposure regimes for 10 consecutive days; a constant ambient temperature (T a) of 32°C (CH), a T a of 32°C for 5 h daily in the latter half of… (More)
