Circadian Clock in Mammals
Course duration:4 h
The suprachiasmatic nucleus of the hypothalamus is the primary biological clock regulating circadian rhythms in mammals. Understanding the ionic mechanisms underlying these rhythms is an important goal of research in chronobiology. Results of the experiments, published and own, shedding light on this item including modelling will be presented during the course.
