Unformatted text preview: D. Comment briefly on the similarities and differences in the response to somatostatin in the three types of animals we have examined (e.g. time course, amplitude). The response in both the hibernating and senescent animals is reduced in amplitude compared to awake, young adult animals, to a greater extent in the senescent animals. Comparing to the awake, young adult animals the response is much slower in senescent animals but a little faster in hibernating animals. Overall, at early times after application of somatostatin the response in the senescent animals will be much smaller than the response in either awake or hibernating young animals. The hibernating animal has a smaller overall response....
