In this study, the locomotor activity of a nocturnal prosimian, the slow loris (Nycticebus coucang), was monitored under an experimentally varied light regime. During the process of reversing their day-night cycle, activity was monitored for a light-dark cycle roughly correlating to the external day-night, a free-running period in total darkness followed by a reversed day- night light regime.
Under constant conditions an endogenous cycle was shown to be present. During the artificial light regimes, locomotor activity became synchronized to the period of darkness.
