Ability of Rat to Adapt to Stress of Light Restraint
Proceedings of the Society for Experimental Biology and Medicine
Ability of the albino rat to adapt to stress of light restraint was investigated. Rats were able to adapt to the stress of restraint (for one week) in a cylinder of wire mesh so that they did not become hypothermic when exposed to the stress in the cold. The possible roles of emotional adaptation and adrenal cortical activity in producing the increased resistance to these stresses are discussed. © 1954, SAGE Publications. All rights reserved.
