1. In order to discriminate between homeostatic and circadian control of energy expenditure, this paper considers whether a shorter circadian cycle will produce a proportional reduction in energy expenditure (so that expenditure per unit time is conserved) or alternatively whether energy expenditure will be compressed into the shorter cycle (so that energy expenditure per cycle is conserved). To answer this question, we measured energy expenditure in tau mutant hamsters (whose free-running… CONTINUE READING
