Abstract

Brain slices, containing the suprachiasmatic nuclei, of rats were removed at various times of the fay and the firing rates of single cells were recorded. The firing rates were found to maintain a circadian rhythm in temporal accord with the light/dark cycle of the donor animal, and were highest during the lights on phase.
