The effects of ventromedial hypothalamic (VMH) lesions on the circadian periodicity of blood corticosterone were studied in female rats. The rats were kept on a 12-hour light/12-hour dark illumination regimen and fed ad libitum. Three, 10 and 12 weeks after the VMH lesions, the concentrations of blood corticosterone were measured every 4 h for 48 h in the… CONTINUE READING
