Abstract

The mammalian circadian timing system is composed of almost as many individual clocks as there are cells. These countless oscillators have to be synchronized by a central pacemaker to coordinate temporal physiology and behavior. Recently, there has been some progress in understanding the relationship and communication mechanisms between central and peripheral clocks.
