Unnatural light-dark cycles expose duelling circadian clocks

...ies are in synchrony with one another. By exposing rats to a very short day/night schedule a regimen that effectively pushes the limits of the SCN's ability to set the clock to day length researchers have discovered within the SCN two sub-clocks that normally oscillate in unison, but can become disconne...

How do animals exposed to 24-hour light retain their wake-sleep habits?

...ythm of sleep and wakefulness. Control laboratory rats (N=4) were exposed to artificial continuous light and demonstrated the Aschoff effect, where the circadian activity pattern changes quantitatively with the intensity of the light. This group took on a 26-hour day. This was not the case when the exper...

Laboratory rat gene sequencing completed

...one-fourth of the human genome is shared with both rats and mice. That's approximately 825 shared, non-repetitive DNA of DNA shared by all three animals. "It's surprising that the amount of shared DNA is so small," Brent said. Relative to their last common ancestor, the rodent lineage has mutated more...
