The specific objectives for this year were as follows: (1) characterization of the chemical neuroanatomy of the human suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN); (2) characterization of a putative retinohypothalasic tract in the human; (3) characterization of the projections of the human SCN using antisera to vasoactive intestinal polypeptide (VIP).
