Method P.302 3rd paragraph:"Two groups of guinea-pigs were subjected to motor activity increase of short (I) and long (II) duration, respectively. The first group of animals was killed immediately after the end of the experiment, the second group was allowed to rest for 18 hours before the animals were sacrificed. The volumes of the cell bodies, nuclei and nucleoli were measured and compared to control cells."
