Campbell and Murphy reported recently that 3 h of bright light (13,000 lux) exposure to the area behind the knee caused phase shifts of the circadian rhythms of both body temperature and saliva melatonin in humans. The authors tested the hypothesis that extraocular photoreception is also involved in the circadian system of the Syrian hamster. Hamsters were bilaterally enucleated (eyes removed), and their backs were shaved. Hamsters with stable free-running rhythms in constant darkness were… CONTINUE READING
