Exogenous melatonin induces phase shifts in circadian rhythms ac cording to a phase response curve in nocturnal rodents, several nonmammalian diurnal species, and humans. Daily administration of melatonin entrains rhythms within a narrow circadian window of sensitivity in these species. Entrainment to exogenous melatonin has not previously been demonstrated in a (nonhuman) diurnal mammal. The authors examined the effects of daily melatonin administration (via food) in the diurnal Indian palm… Expand
