In a previous study we described abnormalities in cytoarchitecture and vasoactive intestinal polypeptide distribution in the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) of anophthalmic mice. However, the effect of anophthalmia on the geniculohypothalamic pathway, an important pathway for relay of photic information to the SCN, is not known. The present study examined the(More)
The present study has combined recording of circadian locomotor rhythms with light microscopic immunocytochemistry for vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP) in the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) of congenitally anophthalmic mice. These mice, which never develop retinae or optic nerves and do not perceive light, are thus in constant darkness. Our data show(More)
