Overview

This volume provides a concise and accessible account of recent developments in chronobiology and of the implications and applications of chronobiological principles in pharmacology and medicine. The molecular biology and genetics of circadian clocks are considered along with the neuroanatomy and neurochemistry of the vertebrate clock. Recent advances in our understanding of entrainment mechanisms are also described. Special emphasis is placed on the importance of chronobiology in pharmacology and therapeutics, and the existence of biological rhythms in physiological and pathological processes.
