[Abstract Not Included]
Summary: The effects of restraint on skin, subcutaneous, and deep visceral temperatures of rats exposed to environmental temperatures of 0°C, 8°C, 16°C, and 28°C are determined. The temperature gradients of restrained and unrestrained rats at 0°G are compared.
From the data presented, it is felt that one factor in the thermolability of restrained animals is an increased heat loss. There is also evidence suggesting a decreased metabolic rate, the chemical nature of which is unknown Which of these two factors plays the greater role is yet to be determined.
