Prenatal protein malnutrition induces a phase shift advance of the spontaneous locomotor rhythm and alters the rest/activity ratio in adult rats.

Abstract

Evidence is accumulating for significant structural and functional changes within the central nervous system (CNS) following prenatal protein malnutrition. Included among the structures that are likely to be affected are the suprachiasmatic nuclei (SCN) involved in the regulation of locomotor activity, sleep-wake cycle, and drinking behavior. To determine… (More)
