Biological Rhythms, Mood Disorders, Light Therapy, and the Pineal Gland combines the experience of psychiatric clinicians, psychiatric residents, medical students, endocrinologists, psychoimmunologists, neurobiologists, neuroanatomists, and other health professionals to present the most recent progress made in the study of the pineal gland and its relationship to mood disorders, including

� major depressive disorders
� winter depression
� bipolar disorders
� premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
� sleep disorders

The use of bright light to treat these disorders is also discussed.

"A superior level of interdisciplinary integration has been achieved in this review of current progress on biological rhythms, mood, light, and the pineal gland. The editors of this volume have chosen appropriate experts to explore the morphology and physiology of the pineal gland, its potential relationship to mood disorders, and the role of melatonin and light therapy in several psychopathological conditions. This volume balances nicely the basic and clinical aspects, and integrates behavioral and treatment components into this emerging dynamic field of biological rhythms."�David J. Kupfer, M.D., Department of Psychiatry, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic
