The refractory period is now known to consist of two phases, the first of which involves an external requirement, namely an appropriate photoperiod (at least in the migratory passerine species studied) and a second phase involving an internal reaction, probably at the hypothalamo-hypophyseal level, preparing the bird for the next stage of gonadal growth. Moreover, a few data suggest that regression of the gonad and its subsequent reorganization, as described by Marshall (1951), and the preparatory reaction, which occurs in the fall, are not a part of the same phenomenon.

Hence, the time that motile sperm are present is determined by the photoperiod. Another aspect which is controlled by the photoperiod is the duration of maximal activity. Hence, the time that regression begins is also a function of the photoperiod. A new cycle begins when the day lengths in late summer and fall reach a length which is effective for the development and ultimate completion of the next preparatory phase. The time-measuring reactions themselves seem to be located primarily in the hypothalamus and to be regulated by the changing daily periods of light and darkness through the year.
