We observed effects of an 8-h advance of the light-dark (LD) cycle on the sleep-wake rhythm in the rat. On the day phase-advanced, rapid eye movement (REM) sleep increased with its enhanced diurnal amplitude. Non-REM (NREM) sleep gradually increased in parallel with the decrease of its diurnal amplitude. Although the acrophase of NREM sleep gradually(More)
We have studied the effects of an 8-h advance of the environmental light-dark (LD) cycle on the sleep-wake rhythm in the rat. Electroencephalograms and electromyograms were recorded simultaneously on chart paper through a two-channel telemetry system for 3 days before phase shift (baseline) and 8 days during and after phase shift. Phase advance of the LD(More)
We have studied the effect of vitamin B12 (VB12) on the sleep-wake rhythm following an 8-h advance of the light-dark (LD) cycle in the rat. The electroencephalogram and electromyogram were recorded on chart paper via a two-channel telemetry system. Infusion of VB12 (Mecobalamin; 0.25 microgram/h) or saline into the abdominal cavity was performed using an(More)
The photometric sampling method extracts shape and re-flectance properties of surfaces by using multiple illumination directions and a single viewing direction. We have previously proposed a recovering algorithm for smooth surfaces. One of the limitations of the previous algorithm is that it cannot recover the shape and roughness of specular lobe dominant(More)
