Abstract

Second section of the paper contains description of hypothalamic centres involved in regulation of circadian rhythms. Connections between these neurons and activating reticular system are described. Transition from arousal to sleep, promoted by substances called somnogens, is discussed. Lastly, function of suprachiasmatic nucleus as circadian oscillator is presented.
