Neuronal hypoxia tolerance in diving endotherms
(Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2010-08-20)
The thesis “Neuronal hypoxia tolerance in diving endotherms” sheds light on mechanisms giving diving animals, such as the hooded seal, impressive dive capabilities of 1 hr duration down to 1000 m depth. In spite of enhanced capacity to store oxygen in their body and an ability to reduce their oxygen-consumption, these animals can resurface with blood oxygen values so low that a human being in the ...
