Abstract

Circadian abnormalities may be related to mood disorders. Circadian gene expression was measured in postmortem brain tissue from individuals with affective disorders and controls. Relationships between circadian gene expression, clinical characteristics, and alcohol and psychotropic medication use were noted. Further study is warranted to characterize these relationships.
