Table 1 The effects of CGRP on the firing rates of anterior hypothalamic neurons

From: Calcitonin gene-related peptide alters the firing rates of hypothalamic temperature sensitive and insensitive neurons

    Firing Rate (impulses.s-1 ± S.E.)
Thermosensitivity (impulses.s-1.°C-1) Response N Baseline CGRP Washout
Insensitive (< 0.8)      
  No Change 16 4.2 ± 0.3 4.4 ± 0.3 4.1 ± 0.6
  Increase 22 3.5 ± 0.5 5.1 ± 0.6* 3.6 ± 0.4
Warm (≥ 0.8)      
  Decrease 7 8.2 ± 0.8 3.3 ± 0.6* 8.1 ± 0.5
