Summary
Abstract: It has been shown that under stress, red blooded notothenioids increase their haematocrit by contracting the spleen thus releasing red blood cells and increasing the heart rate. The increase in heart rate appears to be the result of a decrease in cholinergic inhibition rather than adrenergic (adrenaline mediated) stimulation. The aim was to determine, in vivo, if levels of circulating adrenaline ... View entire text
