Schmidt Lab Describes Multiple Sleep Circuits

July 29, 2019

In a study in the journal eLife, the Schmidt lab discovered that there are distinct brain circuits that drive how mice respond to acute light versus long-term changes in the environmental light/dark cycle. This study includes data from M.S. in Neurobiology student Michelle Ren from the Schmidt and Turek labs in the Department of Neurobiology. The paper, titled “Distinct ipRGC subpopulations mediate light’s acute and circadian effects on body temperature and sleep” was published in eLife on July 23rd. eLife is a premier life sciences journal. Read the full article on eLife here
