SMITH, ROBERT E., AND JANE C. ROBERTS. Thermogenesis of brown ad ipose tissue in cold-acclimated rats. Am. J. Physiol. 206( I > : 143-148. I g64.-Multilocular brown adipose tissue in the rat is shown to increase in both mass and respiratory rate, in vitro, during cold acclimation. By vascular convection the resulting heat is directly applied to the thoracocervical regions of the spinal cord, the heart, and other thoracic organs. The vasculature is so arranged as to exercise a fine order of… CONTINUE READING
