... after a meal. Throughout the telencephalon, cell proliferation was significantly increased in the 6 day group, with no difference between the 2 day group and controls. Systemic postprandial plasticity occurs quickly after a meal is ingested, during the period of active digestion; however, the brain...

... to occur in response to repeated elevations of O 2 demand and/or reduced O 2 supply in several species of vertebrate ectotherms, including postprandial Burmese pythons ( Python bivittatus ). Recent data suggest postprandial cardiac hypertrophy in P. bivittatus is a facultative rather than obligatory...

... balance regulation appears negligible in studies of unfed fish, but evidence of high intestinal fluid [HCO 3 − ] in fed marine teleosts led us to investigate the source of this HCO 3 − and its potential role in offsetting the postprandial ‘alkaline tide’ commonly associated with digestion. Specifically...

It may be hypothesized that the rate of cooling, particularly at relatively cool T b s, would be further reduced during postprandial periods when specific dynamic action (SDA) increases endogenous heat production (i.e. the heat increment...
