In nocturnal species cholinergic agonists alter circadian rhythm phase when injected intraventricularly or directly into the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN), but the phase shifts obtained differ depending upon the site being injected. Cholinergic projections reach the SCN of nocturnal laboratory rats, however, nothing is known about these projections in diurnal rodents. The first objective of this study was to evaluate the hypothesis that cholinergic projections to the SCN are only present in… CONTINUE READING
