An ANOVA computed on body temperatures for Days 1-4 of tolerance acquisition confirmed that rats subjected to cold water demonstrated a significant adaptation to cold exposure [F(3, 48) = 22.
Because in our experiments exposure to the distal contextual cues necessarily preceded the restraint and cold exposure, the serial order of events may have given the context an occasion setting role.
Whether other cold exposure durations might have acted as a CS, of course, remains undetermined.
Stimulus conditions influencing the development of tolerance to repeated cold exposure in rats.
These impressions were supported by an ANOVA which confirmed a significant tolerance to cold exposures [F(4, 116) = 57.
The day following the test for tolerance retention (Day 21) all rats were tested for associative control of cold tolerance by administering the 8-min cold exposures in a shifted context.
That investigation showed that four weeks of L-citrulline slowed or weakened the increase in aortic blood pressure in response to cold exposure.
