Politics of Periodicity

How I wish I could see this seminar at The Johns Hopkins University:

Thurs., April 27, 4 p.m. "Circadian Oscillators in the Brain: Politics of Periodicity," a Biology seminar with Eric Herzog, Washington University; 100 Mudd. HW

Eric is a great speaker - I wonder what is he going to talk about! I am assuming that "politics" refers to the "negotiation" between different types of clock cells in the mammalian SCN, each with a different endogenous period, as to what period will the final output have. This will entail signalling mechanisms between cells, I assume, as well as phase-shifting properties of the cells.

Anyone there at John Hopkins who can go, watch and blog this?
