Nervus conarii originates from the superior cervical ganglion of sympathetic chain and carries autonomic fibres to the pineal gland. The nerve fibres are responsible for the cyclic release of melatonin by pinealocytes meant for the circadian rhythm. The ganglion conarii has also been reported in literature, however further studies are required to endorse the same.
