Abstract

Objective: Hyperthermia may cause pathological changes in all systems and organs including the brain. Neuronal effects of exogenous fever (39 degrees C) and hyperthermia (41 degrees C), and efficacy of different medication modalities were studied in two-week-old infant female Wistar-Albino rats.
