    Thumbs up Temperature Regulation in Laboratory Rodents

    Temperature Regulation in Laboratory Rodents
    by Christopher Gordon

    Pages: 296
    Publisher: Cambridge University Press
    Edition: 1994
    Language: English
    ISBN: 978-0521414265


    Rodents are the predominant experimental animals found in life-sciences research laboratories. The body temperature of a rodent is markedly affected by surgical, chemical or environmental manipulation. Because temperature regulation is controlled essentially by a 'holistic' regulatory system, meaning that its responses affect the activities of all other psychological and behavioural processes, it is clear that researchers working with rodents must be familiar with thermoregulatory physiology. With the help of extensive data tables and figures, this book explains the key facets of rodent thermal physiology, including neurological control and gender and intraspecies variations. There is a novel chapter on the effects of trauma, toxic chemicals and other factors. The book should therefore find use in government, academic or industrial laboratories whose researchers are working with rodents.
