Entrainment of circadian rhythms: retinofugal pathways and unilateral suprachiasmatic nucleus lesions.

Abstract

The role of retinohypothalamic input to the suprachiasmatic nuclei (SCN) as well as SCN afferents from the ventrolateral geniculate nuclei (LGNV) in the entrainment of circadian drinking rhythms was investigated in the rat. Bilateral lesions of the LGNV and the primary optic tracts had no affect on the entrainment of drinking rhythms to a light-dark cycle… (More)
