  • Daily oscillations in physiology and behavior are regulated by a brain clock located in the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN). Individual cells within this nucleus contain an autonomous molecular clock. Recent discoveries that make use of new molecular and genetic data and tools highlight the conclusion that the SCN is a heterogeneous network of functionally and phenotypically differentiated cells. Neurons within SCN subregions serve distinctly separate functions in regulating the overall activity… CONTINUE READING
