Brain Gangliosides and Thermal Adaptation in Vertebrates
- 86 Downloads
The ability of the vertebrates to adapt to fluctuations in their environment is mainly based upon adaptive changes within the CNS, in which the synapses have been shown to be the most sensitive structures. Therefore it is assumed that changes in the physico-chemical properties of the synaptic membrane probably are responsible for maintaining adequate transmission and possibly related kinds of adaptive neuronal processes.
