Abstract : Our research program aims to understand the mechanisms by which major neurotransmitter pathways regulate the biological clock in the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) of the mammalian brain. Our model species is the rat. The specific progress made by each of the three students supported by the AASERT award in FY1 is summarized below. Each of these students has maintained satisfactory grades and progress toward their degree requirements during the funding period.
