|Catherine singing the SCN song (c) Katherine Belessiotis|
Catherine's song is all about the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN), the master clock in the human brain. The SCN is a brain region that co-ordinates and synchronises all the daily biological rhythms in our body. It has direct connections with the eyes so can be re-set by light, otherwise we would never get over jet-lag!
Here is a video of the performance, sorry we didn't get good enough visual, hopefully you'll enjoy the lyrics! I think the audience did great, especially without any practice!
Thanks Catherine for this amazing contribution to the education and communication of body clocks!! For those of you interested in attending (or presenting) at a Science Show Off event please visit: http://www.scienceshowoff.org/
