As indicated within the Preface, the contributions to this quantity are established upon the papers awarded on the symposium on Thermoreceptors and Temperature Regula tion held in July 1988 on the Institute of body structure of the college of Marburg (Federal Republic of Germany) to have fun and commemorate the existence and achievements of HERBERT HENSEL, who directed that Institute from 1955 till his loss of life in 1983, and whose so much striking and important contributions to thermo body structure have been within the parts of the homes and features of thermo sensors, mammalian thermoregulation extra ordinarily, and the psychophysiology of ther mal sensation. all of the papers during this quantity deal, to a better or lesser volume, with those discernibly diversified yet heavily allied facets of mammalian body structure. The editors have sought to accomplish harmony, circulate, and stability either within the contributed articles and of their order of presentation, with out both huge gaps or redundancies within the insurance of the hot advances within the figuring out of thermoreceptors and thermoregulation. while we now have sought to prevent the sort of measure of editorial keep an eye on as to spoil the uniqueness of the contributions, and the decisions upon which they have been dependent. we've additionally sought to appear either forwards and backwards, and to incorporate a few valid extension of the con sideration of thermosensitivity and thermoregulation into such parts as climatic model and fever. consequently the "greater or lesser" of the closeness of this sequence of papers to HERBERT HENSEL'S clinical interests.
