Recovery of conditioned reflexes in dogs after induction of hypothermia by means of head packs

Abstract

Following the restoration of the body temperature in dogs, overcooled by head packs to the rectal temperature of 28°C, the secretory food and defensive respiratory conditioned reflexes are also completely restored. The process of restoration of the cerebral cortical function is 2–3 times slower than after external overcooling of the whole body. The restoration of defensive respiratory reflexes begins on the day after over cooling and is completed on the sixth day. The restoration of secretory food conditioned reflexes begins only on the third day after hypothermis and is completed on the 8th day.
