Summary Multiple pulses of light administered to humans have been reported to result in type 0 phase responses. These results suggest the underlying pacemaker to be nonsimple. At present, results with this type of protocol have only been reported for humans. Therefore, multiple pulses of light were administered to rats. Rats were exposed to one, two, three, or four pulses of light for 5 h (1000 lux) at successive 24-h intervals. Results did not suggest a type 0 phase response. Nonetheless, results with a second, third, or fourth light exposure were not fully predictable from a phase response curve derived from a single light pulse.
