    preferred theory

    PNUTTRO

    I was just wondering if you have a preferred theory.
    Children with AIS don't process melatonin properly because of a nervous system dysfunction. I assume that specialized cells in the nervous system have been killed or disabled. This might be caused by autoimmunity like Type 1 Diabetes or Narcolepsy. However it could just as easily be some sort of tropism. There are probably a dozen good explanations on how it might work. I don't have a strong opinion on the exact mechanism.

    Once scientists determine which cells have been compromised I'm sure they'll have strong opinions on what knocked them out.
