The long-term goal of our research is to understand the functional properties of SCN neurons and how the circadian clock regulates these properties. To reach this goal we are pursuing four lines of research:

Cellular electrophysiology of the suprachiasmatic nucleus

Regulation of retinal input to the SCN

Role of intracellular Ca2+ as a signaling molecule in the circadian system

Characterization of the retinal ganglion cells projecting to the SCN




    Organisms and Viruses

    • AVP-GFP ( Rattus norvegicus )

    • Per1:Luc ( Rattus norvegicus )

      Bioluminescence is used for long duration recording of Per1 expression.

    • Per1:Venus ( Mus musculus )
