Abstract

Development of eye movements in REM‐sleep was studied in rats during the second and third week of postnatal life. An increased frequency of eye movements was found after eye opening, which was due only to changes in burst activity. Since pups reared in constant darkness showed an increase in eye movement activity similar to that of those exposed to diurnal light‐dark alterations, the change seems to be part of an endogenous developmental timetable rather than due to an increase of visual stimulation by eye opening.
