Abstract: Method for mediating the effects of light on melatonin rhythmicity in mammals and a method of mediating circadian rhythms, effected by the administration of a compound or compounds effective at a 5-HT2c serotonin receptor site. By administration of selected doses of the 5-HT2c receptor active compound it is possible to advance or delay circadian rhythms as measured by the rate of melatonin production or moderation of core body temperature rhythms.
