Chimeric Mice Reveal Clues to How Brain's
Clock "Ticks"

By studying mice whose brains contain a
composite of neurons that produce
normal and longer-than-normal circadian
rhythms, HHMI researchers are
beginning to understand how neurons control
the body's 24-hour, internal clock.

The experiments represent the beginning of
a new research direction that
progresses beyond discovering the genes
that produce the internal clock
machinery to exploring how brain cells
interact to produce circadian rhythms.

Research published in the April 6, 2001,
issue of the journal Cell.
