dc.description.abstract We have developed, and herein describe, a simple, open-loop model in the rat, in which both skin and hypothalamic temperatures can be modified and clamped. A water-perfused thermode was positioned in the abdomen to drive hypothalamic temperature, and a water-perfused jacket was used to clamp skin temperature. These permitted the independent control of hypothalamic and skin temperatures. The former could be altered between 35 and 41 ?C whilst achieving an isothermal skin temperature clamp. Similarly, skin temperature could be modified between 22 and 42 ?C whilst hypothalamic temperature was clamped. Maximal hypothalamic heating and cooling rates were: 0.75 and -2.04 ?C h-1 100 g-1. We are currently using this animal model to investigate how central thermosensitivity is affected via manipulations of hypothalamic cooling rates. en_US
