Caption

Melatonin is a hormone secreted by the pineal gland (red) at night. It regulates the body's daily biological rhythm depending on luminosity as light regulates its secretion via a path involving the suprachiasmatic nucleus (green), the paraventricular nucleus (yellow) and the preganglionic sympathetic neurons.
