    J Neurosci 21:6405-12. 2001
    ..The data also suggest that this new photopigment is retinaldehyde based. These findings suggest that there is a novel opsin photopigment in the human eye that mediates circadian photoreception...

  1. OCULAR CONTROL OF MELATONIN REGULATION--ACTION SPECTRUM
    George Brainard; Fiscal Year: 2001
    ..This action spectrum will clarify the range and peak sensitivity of the receptor system that transmits photic stimuli to the human neuroendocrine and circadian system. ..
  2. Ocular Control of Melatonin Regulation: Action Spectrum
    George Brainard; Fiscal Year: 2004
    ..Ultimately, this research will lead to the identification of photoreceptors implicated in the use of light as a therapeutic intervention. ..
