The ability of nursing mothers to entrain the circadian pacemaker of rat pups was examined by measuring the rat Per1 (rPer1) and rPer2 expression levels in the suprachiasmatic nuclei (SCN). Newborn rats from mothers under a light-dark cycle (LD) were blinded immediately after birth and reared by foster mothers under either LD (LD blind pups) or reversed light-dark cycle (DL; DL blind pups). At postnatal day (P)6, small but significant phase differences were observed in the circadian gene… CONTINUE READING
