Our laboratory is interested in the neural and endocrine control of circadian and seasonal rhythms in mammals. A lot of our attention is devoted to the neural circuits that connect the circadian clock of the suprachiasmatic nucleus to other regions of the brain that regulate sleep and reproductive functions. In collaboration with the laboratory of Dr. Laura Smale, we are investigating the functional anatomy of these circuits in diurnal and nocturnal species.
