Circadian patterns of behaviour change during pregnancy in mice

Published on by Georgia Clarke

Pregnancy demands increased energy intake to enable fetal and placenta growth and to create future lactation reserves. Pregnant mice have increased food intake, due to increased light-phase meal size, and reduced physical activity. Circadian rhythms regulate food intake and activity, and murine diurnal activity are altered during pregnancy, however, the circadian timing of food and water intake, activity and sleep in pregnancy is unknown.
