Entrainment of circadian rhythms by zeitgebers is generally believed to conform to the principles of the so-called nonparametric theory of entrainment. Although seldom recognized, this theory presupposes that the response of the circadian system to photic stimulation is dependent on previous photic stimulation. The process of dark adaptation in the circadian system has been investigated previously in only two studies in golden hamsters. In this study, dark adaptation in the circadian system of… CONTINUE READING
