The neurons of the mammalian suprachiasmatic nuclei (SCN) control circadian rhythms in molecular, physiological, endocrine, and behavioral functions. In the SCN, circadian rhythms are generated at the level of individual neurons. The last decade has provided a wealth of information on the genetic basis for circadian rhythm generation. In comparison, a modest but growing number of studies have investigated how the molecular rhythm is translated into neuronal function. Neuronal attributes have… CONTINUE READING
