Abstract Our research program specializes in the longitudinal monitoring of pineal melatonin secretion for weeks at a time to decipher mechanisms of circadian pacemaker entrainment and reentrainment in freely moving animals. More specifically, we aimed at understanding circadian pacemaker behaviors following advance shift of the light:dark (LD) cycles, which simulate human jet lag behaviors following eastward travels.
