The research aims of Neurobiological Rhythms and Sleep are focused on the molecular, cellular and behavioral mechanisms of the circadian timing system and the consequences of aging and neurodegenerative disease.Our approaches strive to understand the mechanisms of synchronization of circadian rhythms by lignt, the molecular and physiological mechanisms of the endogenous circadian oscillators, and the regulation of output behavioral and physiological rhythms. The coding of photic information ...

My research interest is to understand how the circadian system is regulated by light, the role of classical and novel photoreceptors in circadian light perception and the consequences of specific photoreceptor deletions on the functioning of the retinal oscillator and the central endogenous clock. This work include a range of molecular, cellular, anatomical and behavioral approaches.

My research projects focus on understanding the mechanisms involved in entrainment of the circadian timing system (a.k.a. the
endogenous biological clock), the physiological consequences of circadian
misalignment (circadian rhythms sleep disorders, space class missions), and the
etiology of circadian and/or sleep disorders in conditions such as ocular
pathologies, neurodegenerative diseases, aging, and shift work. My research
interests also include understanding ...
