Effects of ambient light on body temperature regulation in resting and exercising rats.

Abstract

We investigated the effects of environmental light and darkness on thermoregulation during both daytime and nighttime by monitoring body temperature (T(b)) and physical activity of rats using a telemetry system. Experiments were performed in both resting and exercising rats. In resting rats, lights-off during the daytime resulted in an increase in both T(b… (More)
