A limit cycle interpretation of a mosquito circadian oscillator


, : A limit cycle interpretation of a mosquito circadian oscillator. Journal of Theoretical Biology, 842: 281-310

The author presents a limit cycle model for the circadian oscillator driving the flight activity rhythm of Culex quinquefasciatus Say (pipiens quinquefasciatus). The model is essentially similar to one established earlier for Drosophila pseudoobscura Frol. Evidence supporting the Culex model includes spiral oscillator transients following transfer to dim light and both 'weak' and 'strong' phase-resetting.
