The tau mutation shortens the free-running circadian period of the activity rhythm of the Syrian hamster from around 24 h in the wild-type, to 20 h in the homozygous mutant. The aim of this study was to examine the effects of light pulses on the activity rhythms and expression of c-fos in the suprachiasmatic nuclei of wild-type and mutant hamsters. This would make it possible to determine the relative durations of subjective day and night, and thereby characterize further the effect of the… CONTINUE READING
