Description: Dr. Robert Gannon

Many physiological processes such as the sleep/wake cycle, hormone release, feeding and metabolism occur in cycles that are nearly twenty-four hours long. Cycles such as these are referred to as circadian ("about a day") rhythms, and my laboratory investigates the physiology of mammalian circadian rhythms. Circadian rhythms in mammals are generated by a set of pacemaker cells located within a paired set of nuclei situated just above the optic chiasm in the brain. These nuclei are called the suprachiasmatic nuclei, and the pacemaker cells within these nuclei generate a twenty-four rhythm that is synchronized with the organism's day/night cycle. These pacemaker cells also synchronize the timing of other pacemaker cells throughout the body so that all of the body's clocks are running at the same time.
