Induction of a torpor-like hypothermic and hypometabolic state in rodents by ultrasound (Nature)

We achieve a long-lasting (>24 h) torpor-like state in mice via closed-loop feedback control of ultrasound stimulation with automated detection of body temperature.

Scientists may be able to put Mars-bound astronauts into 'suspended animation' using sound waves, mouse study suggests
