The followings have been clarified by this three-year co-operative research.
(1) Thermoreceptive mechanisms within the hypothalamus using an isolated tissue.
Modullary neurons receive cold information and control shivering. Control of higher brain activity by thermosensitive neurons in the hypothalamus.
(2) Importance of the OVLT to induce fever by endogenous pyrogens. Acute phase response is controlled by thermoregulatory neurons in the hypothalamus.
(3) Unilateral control of thermal saliva secretion by the hypothalamus. No unilateral control of thermal saliva secretion by skin warming. Tympanic temperature rises before thermal sweating by emotional stress. Sweat expulsion would be an indicator of central sweating activity. Unilateral suppression of sweating and fall of tympanic temperature after stellate ganglion blockade.
(4) Selective brain cooling is evident in humans during hyperthermia. Importance of inward flowing of venous blood from the head and face skin to the intracranium.
(5) Cross acclimation between cold and non-thermal stress. Importance of BAT for the cross acclimation. Negative feed back mechanisms from the central circulatory system to skin blood flow. Exercise at high temperatures suppress metabolism. pH and K-ion concentration change in blood after hypo- and hyperthermia.
(6) Heat shock protein and species difference. Temperature dependency of NK-cells.
Close relation of immune responses to temperature regulation.
