Aging leads to many changes in the expression of circadian rhythms, including reduced amplitude, altered relationship to the environmental illumination cycle, and reduced sensitivity to phase resetting signals. Neuropeptide synthesizing neurons in the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN), the principal circadian pacemaker in mammals, play a role in regulating(More)
With the advent of computerized tomography (CT), an increasing number of patients with only minimal neurological symptoms and no signs of brain herniation are found to harbor subacute or chronic extradural hematomas (EH's). The authors present the cases of 11 symptomatic but neurologically normal children with medium to large EH's managed by close(More)
Assessment of seasonal variations in expression of brain neuropeptide mRNA is complicated by concurrent circadian variations. Because entrainment of suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) based rhythms differs in long versus short day lengths, valid seasonal comparisons must be made at equivalent circadian phases. We used a novel experimental design which permitted(More)
