  1. 1. Effects of repeated whole-body cold stress on finger temperature responses to localized cooling

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för kemi, bioteknologi och hälsa (CBH)

    Author : Pit Gäng; [2020]
    Keywords : CIVD; whole-body cold acclimation; cutaneous blood flow; immersion; thermal perception;

    Abstract : The study aimed to assess whether a short-term, high-intensity cold acclimation protocol would modulate finger vasomotor [i.e., finger temperature (TF), cold induced vasodilation (CIVD)] responses and regional thermo-perception to localized cooling. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cold-induced vasodilation in the brood patch of Zebra finches (Taeniopygia guttata)

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Institutionen för fysik, kemi och biologi

    Author : Sofia Klubb; [2010]
    Keywords : Brood patch; broody; cold-induced vasodilation; mechanism; non-broody; Zebra finch;

    Abstract : The development of the avian embryo is dependent of heat provisioning from the parents. To increase the heat transfer to a cooled egg the Zebra finch females develop a brood patch. Mild cooling generally constricts the blood vessels but the Arterio-venous anastomoses (AVA) in the brood patch in birds dilate. READ MORE

  3. 3. Vasodilatory effects of exogenous nitric oxide on the brood patch of the Zebra finch (Taeniopygia guttata)

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Institutionen för fysik, kemi och biologi

    Author : Anna Södergren; [2010]
    Keywords : Arteriovenous anastomoses; AVA; brood patch; cold induced vasodilation; CIVD; nitric oxide; NO; temperature; vasodilation; Zebra finch; Taeniopygia guttata;

    Abstract : In birds like the Zebra finch (Taeniopygia guttata) the female, but not the male develop a brood patch upon incubation of eggs. The brood patch functions to increase heat exchange between the bird and the eggs. Development of the brood patch includes de-feathering, increased vascularization and edema formation. READ MORE
