An improved cold stress test for aging mice

Abstract

Tolerance to cold stress is a simple and reliable test which can be used longitudinally to study age-related differences or changes in thermoregulation of C57BL/6J mice. Neither prior food deprivation nor permanently inserted thermoprobes are necessary conditions for eliciting reliable age differences. However, restraint during the test is important and does elicit reliable age differences.
