  1. ^ phase for SCN cultures is in Zeitgeber time, not time from cull, as SCN rhythms are not reset by cull/culture procedure.
  2. † not all single cells had damped completely by the end of imaging; ~80% of cells were still clearly oscillating after one week.
  3. # values not directly comparable to data for MBH regions as different detection settings were used to image SCN cultures due to their much higher levels of bioluminescence (see experimental procedures/results).
