suprachiasmatic nucleus


a: suprachiasmatic nucleus ~
b: master clock


"This suprachiasmatic nucleus is like the master clock. It's sort of like the conductor in an orchestra. There are clocks, it turns out, in many other tissues in the body, including other parts of the brain, but everybody comes under the control of the suprachiasmatic nucleus."

METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
