Abstract

In the absence of other environmental cycles, daily variations in auditory stimuli are normally not capable of entraining the circadian rhythms of drinking behavior in the squirrel monkey (Saimiri sciureus). However, the drinking rhythm appears to become entrainable by previously ineffective auditory cues after lesions are placed which destroy only the caudal portion of the hypothalamic suprachiasmatic nuclei. The results suggest specificity of function within the SCN and an increased influence of auditory stimuli in animals with impaired SCN function.
