Abstract

A deviation of the length of photophase from the rhythm of 12L:12D induced monoamine accumulation in diencephalon and pancreas. A short photophase increased plasma FFA. The results suggest that photoperiodism is a stronger modulator of catecholamines and lipid metabolism than changes in ambient temperature (Ta).
