Abstract

The discovery of an intrinsically photosensitive small subgroup of retinal ganglion cells which regulates the circadian rhythms on the light-dark cycle has stimulated the search for the molecular clock(s) driving this essential component of all living organisms. A handful of genes and proteins accounting for this complex regulatory network has been identified, and the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine has been awarded in 2017 to three of the principal scientists who contributed to this research field ; (http:// www.nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/medicine/laureates/2017/ press.html?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_ campaign=twitter_tweet, accessed on Oct. 5th, 2017).
