There is strong evidence supporting the view that the Suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) functions as a circadian clock; however, the neural and molecular events underlying SCN function remain unclear. A specific subpopulation of neurons within the ventrolateral aspect of the SCN that contains three peptides, vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP), peptide histidine isoleucine (PHI) and gastrin-releasing peptide (GRP), play an important role in SCN function. VIP-containing neurons of the SCN receive… CONTINUE READING
