Wurtman, R. J. (1969). The Pineal and Endocrine Function. Hospital Practice, 4(1), 32–37.
Abstract: Recognition that levels of hormonal secretion vary markedly from day to night has triggered intensive investigation into the influence of environmental light upon endocrine function. These studies have pointed to the pineal gland as a major mediator of a wide variety of hormonal responses involving the gonads, thyroid, and pituitary, and the hypothalamus and other regions of the brain.
