A note on the time dependence of pineal gland research publications

Journal Of Pineal Research. 23(2): 59-62

A note on the time dependence of pineal gland research publications

Counts of the number of publication titles containing the search truncation "pinea*" were compiled via Current Contents over the time period 1978-1994. These counts and their time dependence were examined for autocorrelations and frequency spectral components. Such analyses were carried out irrespective of either author, research laboratory, funding, or other factors. Interestingly, the results show the research publication rate in pineal studies to be linked to community history. In particular, the interactions affecting output among community members operate on a few characteristic time scales ranging from one to several years.

There is a diurnal variation in the pineal serotonin content, with a maximum at 7-8 h after the onset of light and a minimum at 3-4 h after the onset of darkness in rats. The levels of serotonin and melatonin can rapidly be altered by changing the...
