STUDY OBJECTIVES To analyze the temporal organization of the sleep-wake cycle under food entrainment in the rat. METHODS Eighteen male Sprague-Dawley rats were chronically implanted for polysomnographic recording. During the baseline (BL) protocol, rats were recorded under a 12:12 light-dark (LD) schedule in individual isolation chambers with food and water ad libitum. Food entrainment was performed by means of a 4-h food restriction (FR) protocol starting at photic zeitgeber time 5. Eight… CONTINUE READING
