1. Temperature dependence of the conduction velocity and the duration of the rising and falling phase of action potential was studied in the median and lateral giant fibres of the nerve cord of earthworms acclimated to 13° or 23° C. 2. Compensatory acclimation of the conduction velocity was found at all temperatures studied from 6° to 32° C. However, the effect was statistically significant only at 6° C. 3. The temperature coefficient (Q 10 ) of the conduction velocity was lower at all… 
Temperature acclimation of the functional parameters of the giant nerve fibres in Lumbricus terrestris L. II. The refractory period.
TLDR
The temperature dependence of the absolute refractory period and of the maximum response frequency was studied in the median and lateral giant fibres of the nerve cord of earthworms acclimated to 13° or 23° C and was unaltered by temperature acclimation.
Effect of acclimation and fixation temperatures on the number of lamellae and periodicity of myelin in fibres of the optic nerve of goldfish
TLDR
Changes in the morphology of the nerve with different acclimation and fixation temperatures are described and the periodicity of the myelin also alters with these temperatures, being greater in the 25° C fish than in the 5° C ones.
THERMAL ACCLIMATION OF A CENTRAL NEURONE OF HELIX ASPERSA
TLDR
The effects of thermal acclimation on the activity of a central autoactive neurone and its temperature dependence were investigated in Helix aspersa and all the measured electrical parameters showed a pronounced hysteresis during rewarming after cold block.
Seasonal variation in conduction velocity of action potentials in squid giant axons.
TLDR
Seasonal changes in the giant axon's size and resistivity are not consistent with compensatory thermal acclimation, but instead serve to maintain a constant relationship between conduction velocity and temperature.
THE EFFECTS OF COOLING ON AN IDENTIFIED REFLEX PATHWAY IN THE COCKROACH (PERIPLANETA AMERICANA), IN RELATION TO CHILL-COMA
TLDR
Several lines of evidence suggest that the reduced effectiveness of central synaptic transmission during cooling may be a critical factor in the impairment of locomotor ability associated with chill-coma.

Physiological adaptation to cold of peripheral nerve in the leg of the herring gull (Larus argentatus).
TLDR
Conduction in excised superficial peroneal nerves of herring gulls (Lams argentatus) as a function of temperature is investigated, finding that the functional resistance to cold in the nerve from the metatarsus is the result of some process of adaptation which occurs during exposure to low temperatures.
Temperature acclimation and the newvous system in fish.
TLDR
It is concluded that the site of cold-block is in the central nervous system of goldfish in which the spinal cord had been cut immediately posterior to the medulla and the upper and lower temperatures at which they do not swim are related to their thermal history.
THE EFFECT OF TEMPERATURE CHANGES ON THE ACTIVITY OF POIKILOTHERMS
TLDR
The way in which the spontaneous activity of the isolated ganglia of the cockroach, crayfish and slug varies with temperature is described, suggesting that this is the means by which poikilotherms aggregate at a prefered temperature.
Temperature acclimation of the ciliary activity in the gills of Anodonta.
Relation between Temperature and Conduction in Nerve Fibers of Different Sizes
TLDR
The present experiments were designed to examine yet another aspect of the problem, namely, the relative effects of temperature on single nerve fibers of different sizes.
Action currents of single nerve fibers as modified by temperature changes.
TLDR
The method of “bridge-insulator,” which is adopted in the present study, seems to eliminate some of the possible sources of error in the ordinary technique of recording the action potential from a single nerve fiber using a slender nerve trunk.
Facilitation of conduction rate in nerve fibres
TLDR
It is shown that many nerve fibres, but not all, normally show increased rate, under good conditions, during a considerable period of the recovery cycle, which is generally accepted that the only alteration in conduction velocity during the recovery period is a decrease during relative irefractoriness.
The Subthreshold Potentials in a Crustacean Nerve Fibre
In a recent paper Katz (1937) has described a number of observations which are inconsistent with classical theories of excitation, but which may be explained by assuming that a subthreshold shock can
