Photoreceptors for Circadian Rhythms

  • Helga Ninnemann


Living in our hectic, jet-set and jet-lag society, most of us have experienced the discomforts imposed by a rapid transfer into shifted day-night cycles, differing in phase considerably from the ones we are used to. Our bodies usually need some days to readjust to the new environment, before our endogenous rhythms have accommodated the changed conditions.
