Abstract The author subjected female ferrets of controlled previous light and sexual history to added nightly lighting (1) without hoods, (2) with hoods which exposed the eyes through holes, and (3) with heads covered by light-tight hoods. The conditions of decreased light on the eyes were associated with delayed oestrus. “The facts indicate that the eyes are the receptors for photo-periodic sexual stimulation in ferrets, mediated by the anterior hypophysis, and that closing their eyes in sleep does not prevent the activation.”
