Data from: Detecting spring after a long winter: coma or slow vigilance in cold, hypoxic turtles?

Jesper G. Madsen, Tobias Wang & Peter Teglberg Madsen
Many freshwater turtle species can spend the winter submerged in ice-covered lakes by lowering their metabolism, and it has been proposed that such severe metabolic depression render these turtles comatose. This raises the question how they can detect the arrival of spring and respond in a sensible way to sensory information during hibernation. Using evoked potentials from cold or hypoxic turtles exposed to vibration and light we show that hibernating turtles maintain neural responsiveness to...
