The newspapers La Vanguardia, Ara, and ABC, among other media, have echoed news of the publication of two studies in Cell by Salvador Aznar Benitah, ICREA researcher at IRB Barcelona, done in collaboration with the University of California, Irvine (USA). The research concludes that in mice with an impaired central clock, which is located in the brain, each tissue knows the time and is able to respond to changes in light that occur between the day and night.
