Abstract : Salivation occurs as a thermoregulatory response in several orders of mammals. Of course, salivation is only one response in a complex activity which dissipates body heat by evaporative water loss. In dogs it is allied with panting, and in rats and kangaroos saliva is spread over the thinly furred parts of the body. Since salivation is a controlled thermoregulatory response during internal and external heat stress, the authors used it to study some of the characteristics of the central nervous regulator during exercise in a dog. Results of these studies are reported.
