  • The analog process in a mechanical watch is the motion of the pendulum or balance wheel and, in quartz watches, the electrical wave produced by a crystal oscillator.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 ] .
