Abstract

The pineal hormone melatonin regulates circadian rhythms, largely by feedback on the central biological clock of the brain, the hypothalamic suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN). This feedback is mediated by the melatonin receptors, melatonin receptor 1 (MT1) and melatonin receptor 2 (MT2). The circadian system may play a role in the pathophysiology of mood disorders, and indeed, melatonin-receptor agonists are considered a potential therapy for depression.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 15 August 2014.
All research outputs
#2,936,546
of 4,507,144 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Affective Disorders
#1,811
of 2,640 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#185,656
of 286,542 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Affective Disorders
#77
of 129 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 4,507,144 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 31st percentile – i.e., 31% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,640 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.3. This one is in the 26th percentile – i.e., 26% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 286,542 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 31st percentile – i.e., 31% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 129 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 34th percentile – i.e., 34% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
