Scientists long believed that two nerve clusters in the human hypothalamus, called suprachiasmatic nuclei (SCNs), were what controlled our circadian rhythms. Those rhythms are the biological cycles that recur approximately every 24 hours in synchronization with the cycle of sunlight and darkness caused by Earth’s rotation. Studies have demonstrated that in some animals, the SCNs control daily fluctuations in blood pressure, body temperature, activity level, and alertness, as well as the nighttime release of the sleep-promoting agent melatonin. Furthermore, cells in the human retina dedicated to transmitting information about light levels to the SCNs have recently been discovered.

Four critical genes governing circadian cycles have been found to be active in every tissue, however, not just the SCNs, of flies, mice, and humans. In addition, when laboratory rats that usually ate at will were fed only once a day, peak activity of a clock gene in their livers shifted by 12 hours, whereas the same clock gene in the SCNs remained synchronized with light cycles. While scientists do not dispute the role of the SCNs in controlling core functions such as the regulation of body temperature and blood pressure, scientists now believe that circadian clocks in other organs and tissues may respond to external cues other than light—including temperature changes—that recur regularly every 24 hours.

f the passage would probably agree with which of the following statements about the SCNs?(一般细节题 , 根据选项关键词回文定位) (A) The SCNs are found in other organs and tissues of the body besides the hypothalamus.(与文章内容不符:SCN和other organs and tissues是地位平等的存在,不可能在一个器官里面藏着其他器官 (B) The SCNs play a critical but not exclusive role in regulating circadian rhythms.(第3结构,正确) (C) The SCNs control clock genes in a number of tissues and organs throughout the body.(与文章内容不符 SCN控制SCN里面的genes,其他tissues and organs控制的是他们内的genes,没有交叉控制) (D) The SCNs are a less significant factor in regulating blood pressure than scientists once believed.(第3结构 与层次逻辑意思相反) (E) The SCNs are less strongly affected by changes in light levels than they are by other external cues.(与文章内容不符,应该是more而不是less)
