Chronic alcohol intake disrupts sleep and other circadian biological rhythms in both human alcoholics and in experimental animals. Recent studies from our laboratory indicate that these effects may be due, in part, to ethanol-induced alterations in fundamental properties of the circadian pacemaker. The present study explored the effects of chronic voluntary ethanol intake (25% v/v) on circadian phase responses to both photic and non-photic stimuli in Syrian hamsters. Hamsters were used in these… CONTINUE READING
