In this paper, we show the existence of stable and unstable periodic solutions for a semilinear parabolic equation

$\qquad\qquad \frac{\partial u}{\partial t}-\Delta_x u -\lambda_1 u +g(u) =s \phi + h$ in $R\times \Omega$

$\qquad\qquad u(t,x) =0$ on $R\times \partial \Omega$

$\qquad\qquad u(0,x)=u(2\pi, x)$ on $\Omega$

where $g$ is a continuous function on $R$, $\phi$ denotes the positve normalized eigenfunction corresponding to the first eigenvalue $\lambda_1$ of problem (L), $s \in R$, and $h \in C([0,2\pi],C^1_0(\overline{\Omega})).$
