Tonic immobility in alligators

Bruce Young, PhD, professor of anatomy at A.T. Still University (ATSU), recently had his study on tonic immobility in alligators published in the Journal of Comparative Physiology A. Tonic immobility causes alligators to become unconscious for a short period of time as a result of being turned onto their back. Dr. Young and colleagues James Adams, DO, Solomon Segal, MD, and Tatyana Kondrashova, MD, PhD, observed tonic immobility in alligators while monitoring the reactions in the circulatory system using Doppler ultrasonography and MRI. The study recently received recognition in Psychology Today.
