Comparative characteristics of cold and febrile tremor

  • Yu. V. Lupandin
Pathological Physiology and General Pathology


In experiments on anesthetized and unanesthetized cats it was concluded on the basis of the identity of distribution of cold and febrile tremor in muscle groups, its electromyographic picture, and the equal sensitivity to neurotropic agents that during cooling of the body and during a febrile reaction the same mechanism of central regulation of contractile thermogenesis is activated.
