The Amenity and Annoyance: Circadian Rhythm, Function of the Limbic System and Metal Metabolism in Mice
At TEMA-5,1 I reported that the prenatal administration of trace amounts of 13 metals and fluoride was effective in changing circadian rhythms in mice. In a subsequent study,2 treatments (bilateral lesions of the central nucleus of amygdala, partial removal of the olfactory bulb, and chemical sympathectomy) and the function of the limbic system were also studied.
