Resumen

The activity of N-acetyltransferase and the melatonin content were measured in the pineal gland of chipmunks kept in either darkness or room light at night. The dark-exposed animals exhibited a marked nocturnal rise in both NAT activity and melatonin content. These rises also occurred in the animals exposed to light at night.
