Example sentences for: oscillators

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

  • Eukaryotic organisms evolved clocks as an adaptation to geophysical cycles such as day and night or high and low tides or the passing seasons [ 1 ] . These clocks are oscillators that control timing in a broad range of processes such as rhythms in gene expression [ 2 ] , and navigational mechanisms for migratory flight [ 3 ] . Studies on the nature of such clocks - whether at the level of gene expression or behavior - most often rely on the measurement of rhythmic processes by repeated sampling over time.

  • As early as the 1960s Hildebrandt and coworkers [ 1 2 ] investigated the phase coordination between both oscillators in man.

  • Most interesting from the physical point of view is whether an apparent coordination of two oscillators in general is only an occasional coincidence or if it is really caused by coupling mechanisms.

  • Synchronization is typically bi-directional and, even more important, it depends on phase relations between two or more interacting oscillators.

  • Among vertebrates, circadian oscillators have been formally identified in the suprachiasmatic nucleus of the mammalian brain [ 26], the retina [ 27, 28, 29], and the pineal gland of non-mammalian vertebrates [ 30, 31].
