Abstract

The suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN)-often referred to as the master circadian clock-is essential in generating physiologic rhythms and orchestrating synchrony among circadian clocks. This study tested the hypothesis that periodic motivation induced by rhythmically pairing 2 reinforcing stimuli [methamphetamine (METH) and running wheel (RW)] restores autonomous circadian activity in arrhythmic SCN-lesioned (SCNX) C3H/HeN mice. Sham-operated and SCNX mice were treated with either METH (1.2 mg/kg, i.p.) or vehicle in association, dissociation, or absence of an RW. Only the association of METH treatment and restricted RW access successfully re-established entrained circadian rhythms in mice with SCNX. RW-likely acting as a link between the circadian and reward systems-promotes circadian entrainment of activity. We conclude that a conditioned drug response is a powerful tool to entrain, drive, and restore circadian physiology. Furthermore, an RW should be recognized as a potent input signal in addition to the conventional use as an output signal.-Rawashdeh, O., Clough, S. J., Hudson, R. L., Dubocovich, M. L. Learned motivation drives circadian physiology in the absence of the master circadian clock.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 141. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 06 February 2017.
All research outputs
#129,551
of 15,117,967 outputs
Outputs from FASEB Journal
#54
of 6,941 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#4,615
of 269,429 outputs
Outputs of similar age from FASEB Journal
#4
of 61 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 15,117,967 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 99th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 6,941 research outputs from this source. They typically receive more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 8.6. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 99% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 269,429 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 98% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 61 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 93% of its contemporaries.
