Mouse SCN Neurons in Dispersed Culture

A movie of circadian rhythms of PER2::LUC bioluminescence recorded from mouse SCN neurons in dispersed culture over a period of two weeks, showing that the cells oscillate independently. Bioluminescence intensity of one cell highlighted near the center of the image is plotted below. This video was reproduced with permission from Welsh, D. K., J. S. Takahashi, and S. A. Kay. (2010).
