Perturbation by Single and Double Pulses as Analytical Tool for Analyzing
The functional structure of the circadian oscillator and its molecular compounds has frequently been analyzed by applying pulsed perturbations of various kinds and registering the response of the oscillator — mainly the phase shifting response [1,2]. This approach has been extensively exploited in the case of the circadian rhythm of Gonyaulax.
