Mammalian photoentrainment: results, methods, and approaches.

Abstract:

Research on circadian biology over the past decade has paid increasing attention to the photoreceptor mechanisms that align the molecular clock to the 24-h light/dark cycle, and some of the results to emerge are surprising. For example, the rods and cones within the mammalian eye are not required for entrainment. A population of directly light-sensitive ganglion cells exists within the retina and acts as brightness detectors. This article provides a brief history of the discovery of these nov...
