REGULATION OF CUTANEOUS CIRCULATION DURING BODY HEATING

Pagination or Media Count:
This report summarizes current information concerning the regional adjustments of cutaneous vascular tone during body heating. Most of the data to which reference is made were obtained in the writers laboratory. The importance of the local skin temperature in accounting for the cutaneous vasodilatation is emphasized and the role of bradykinin is discounted. The regional differences in the onset, temporal sequence, and extent of the cutaneous vasodilatation are not explained by reference to a central thermostat in the hypothalamus.
