Paul Segall, 1979, in Mechanisms of Ageing and Development comments on 
the rebound in several physiological paramataers,  eg. hair growth, 
thermoregulation, which for several months after end of caloric 
restriction display juvinal patterns.  Probablly not unlike the effect 
W.D. Denckla pursued with hypophysectomy with partial hormone 
	I haven't seen this effect being further pursued in the 
literature.  Does any one out there know if this rebound effect is being 
addressed currently and if there is a good search word with which to keep 
tabs on it?
Thanks in advance
