Role of the suprachiasmatic nuclei of the hypothalamus on diurnal rhythm in cardiac arrhythmias


Ambulatory EGG and EEG recordings were recorded under a 14/10-h light-dark illumination schedule using rats. The rats consisted of two groups: a suprachiasmatic (Sch) lesioned group (n=5) and a normal control group (n=5). Bilateral Sch nuclei were lesioned electrically (DC, 2.5 mA, 30 s for each) using a pair of platinum electrodes 0.3 mm in diameter. After… (More)
