Two major focuses on this research are:1. the interaction of
light and estradiol on the regulation of luteinizing hormone secretion in
anestrous mares and 2. the effect of melatonin administration in LH and ovarian

The Endocrine Sequence
teaches the basic principles of hormone secretion and action and the clinical
