Thermogenesis and thermolysis during sleeping and waking in the rat

Thermogenesis (VO2), sensible heat loss and subcutaneous back temperature were recorded simultaneously during sleeping and waking in both intact and depilated rats at Ta ranging from 21–28°C.VO2 increased during wakefulness (W), decreased and plateaued during slow wave sleep (SWS) and then decreased 10% with each paradoxical sleep (PS) phase. Sensible heat… CONTINUE READING
