Table 1 Statistical comparisons of locomotor-activity parameters E1 (evening peak of activity 1), E2 (evening peak of activity 2) and PMI (peak matching index). ANOVA with Tukey’s post-hoc test used to compare parameters among treatments. Results of pairwise comparisons for each parameter are shown as superscript letters; in each column the different letters represent significant difference among treatments
