Abstract : For 30 successive days, mice were administered 6-hour periods in the cold (48 F) and permitted to switch on a heat lamp by means of a free operant response. In the course of this training, the magnitude of the fall in skin temperature in the course of a session declined. The frequency of heat rewards also declined, indicating the development of cold acclimatization. (Author)
