  • Abstract Cumacean Dimorphostylis asiatica exhibits an endogenous swimming rhythm, free-running period of which spontaneously changes from circa 12-hr to circa 24-hr in the laboratory. Administration of a 4-hr pulse of hydrostatic pressure stimulus and a 4-hr light pulse confirmed that the circa 12-hr rhythm is circatidal and the circa 24-hr rhythm circadian, with respect to the phase setting characteristics. The activity records provide evidence of a “splitting” phenomenon, which suggests that… CONTINUE READING
