I am working on the electrophysiology of the visual input of
the suprachiasmatic nucleus. On a quick glance of your references I
couldn't decipher any SCN articles. Maybe nice to include; a review on
Meijer J.H. and Rietveld W.J.; 'Neurophysiology of the Suprachiasmatic
nucleus in Rodents'. Physiological Reviews Vol 69 (1989) 671-707
As far as I know they're still no textbooks on the subject, although two
are in preparation. If you need more neuroanatomy, you should look for
references of R.Y. Moore; he is the authority on the subject.
(RetinoHypothalamic Tract and SupraChiasmatic Nucleus)
There is still one book missing heavingly on your list: The texbook of
Kandell and Schwartz. I have it at home; it's called something like 'The
principles of neural science'. I think you'll find there quit an
extensive story about visual pathways; it's a pity the SCN is only very
Success with your thesis!
