MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

Biological processes that repeat themselves every 24 hours within a biological system are called circadian rhythms. The circadian clock affects the operation of practically all functions in the body. Now in its third edition, this book presents the latest information on recent research and clinical developments. This edition discusses anatomical and physiological characterization of photoresponsive ganglionic cells in the mammalian retina. It addresses molecular circadian clocks in cells of multiple organs other than the hypothalamus and the pineal gland. It also explores advances in post-translational mechanisms in the operation of the molecular clock.
