Abstract : Four normal and five acutely irradiated male Sprague-Dawley rats, all of the same age, were compared with respect to running wheel activity under four food deprivation schedules. The mean running wheel activity for the animals of the normal group over the four deprivation schedules was significantly greater than that for the animals of the irradiated group. Running wheel activity varied significantly with deprivation schedules. The interaction between groups and deprivation schedules was significant. A significantly greater gain in running wheel activity during the second than during the first 4-day period of total food deprivation was noted. (Author)
