Scientists Discover Skin Keeps Time Independent of the Brain

University of Washington School of Medicine

A study published Oct. 10 in Current Biology has now found that a type of opsin known as neuropsin is expressed in the hair follicles of mice and synchronize the skin’s circadian clock to the light-dark cycle, independent of the eyes or brain. This means that skin can sense whether it is day or night even when it’s cultured by itself in a dish. Researchers now want to see if skin heals better if it’s exposed to certain types of light.
