NEW YORK (AP) — NBC hung
on to first place last week in the
A.C. Nielsen Co. ratings for its 5lst
win in a row.
The network finished in first
place for the week ending June ll
with a challenge from CBS on the
strength of two NBA playoff
games. NBCvalso was affected by
President Bush’s prime-time news
conference, because it pre-empted
part of the network’s high-rated
NBC’s average prime-time rating
was 11.1; CBS had 10.8 and ABC
9.6. The last time NBC was out of
first place was last June, when CBS
had two games of the NBA
playoffs, also between the Los An-
geles Lakers and Detroit Pistons.
The series so far has rated
slightly higher than last year’s. Last
Tuesday’s game ranked 16th in the
Nielsens. Thursday’s was tied for
NBC won on the strength of its
regular series, even though they
were in repeats. But ABC’s
“Roseanne" continued to top the
summer rankings. NBC’s “The
Cosby Show” dropped to 11th
place, which NBC attributed to the
schedule shift for Bush’s news con-
The rest of the top 10, all repeats
except for the NBA game, were:
“Cheers,” NBC; “A Place to Call
Home.” CBS; “Empty Nest,”
NBC; “Golden Girls,” NBC;
“Dear John,” NBC; “Wonder
Years,” ABC; “Murder. She
Wrote,” CBS, tied with the playoff
game; and “Day by Day,” NBC, in

Researchers find that light

Scientists in Boston are learning to

symptoms of a jangled body clock

Dr. Charles Czeisler and col
leagues at the Brigham and
Women’s Hospital in Boston repor-
ted today that they succeeded in
consistently resetting the body
clocks of test subjects using timed
exposures to a light about as bright
as the rising sun. Their account of
the experiments was published in
Czeisler said the wake-rest
cycles of the subjects could be
moved forward or back with ease,
but the changes lack the precision
needed for a useful therapy for jet
seuers or for those with troubled
But, eventually, he said, the
study will develop the techniques
needed to use light to change the
body clock and relieve the wilting
weariness many feel when their life
style is out of phase with the sun.
Czeisler said the research proved
conclusively that light can send a
signal to the brain to reset the

Many airline schedules ag-

travelers are forced to cross many

overnight to London, the flight ar-
rives over there at 6 or 7 in the
morning,” he said. “When you go

To better understand the body
clock, Czeisler and other inves-
tigators put 14 young men into a
darkened laboratory free of any ex-
ternal time cues, and then exposed
them to light from fluorescent
lamps that mimicked the intensity
of the dawning sun.
Czeisler said the researchers
found they could reset the body
clock of the test subjects in any
direction, depending on when the
light was applied.
_ He said exposure at one part of
the cycle would move the body
clock backward, an eastward time
shift, while exposure at another
time would have the opposite ef-
fect. Exposure at some points in the
biological day. said Czeisler, would
cause no change. ,
Circadian cycles of the test sub-
jects were determined - by
measurements of body temperature,
hormone levels, kidney function
and alertness, all of which are af-
fected by the body clock.
Czeisler said it’s now believed
that light striking the retina of the
eye sends a signal down a nerve
pathway to the hypothalamus in the
brain. This organ, which can con-
trol sleep, alertness and other body
functions, seems to be reset daily
This is the reason, Czeisler said,
that night shift workers who com-
mute home at dawn may spend
years trying to adjust to their work
