How can you use “oscillator” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • Thus, in both nocturnal and diurnal species, per expression in the cortex is maximal in conjunction with the major waking episode [ 37 49 50 ] . Under conditions where the phase (methamphetamine administration, restricted feeding) or distribution (circadian splitting) of locomotor activity is altered, per expression in the cortex parallels the overt rhythm of wakefulness, whereas the circadian oscillation of per gene expression in the SCN remains unaffected [ 49 51 52 ] . Thus, in contrast to its role in the SCN, PER protein in the cortex is not a component of a self-sustaining circadian oscillator [ 53 ] . Instead, per expression in the cortex seems to the follow sleep-wake history, consistent with the hypothesis that it is related to homeostatic regulation of sleep.

  • Support for this conclusion comes from the recent finding that circadian oscillation of gene expression in the liver is entrained by food intake independently of the central oscillator in the brain [ 50].

  • 2) of the non-linear model, we observed that the oscillatory curves did not deviate greatly from a simple harmonic oscillator plus a constant offset.

  • It is driven by a pacemaker oscillator with a frequency on the order of about 2 Hz [ 23 24 ] . Although heartbeat, courtship song, and locomotor-activity rhythms occur on different time scales, the mechanisms underlying these different rhythms could be related.

  • As a result, the study of such networks focuses not on the exact values of outputs, but rather on qualitative behavior, e.g., whether the network acts as a “switch,” “filter,” “oscillator,” “dynamic range adjuster,” “producer of stripes,” etc.
