Abstract

Circadian clocks, which underlie the daily rhythms in virtually all organisms, are entrained by diurnal changes in light, temperature, nutrients, and even sound. Simoni et al. (2014) demonstrate that diurnal variation in mechanical vibrations can reset circadian clock phase, providing a potential mechanism for integrating diverse clock-entraining stimuli.
