According to the comprehensive review of Vigh and colleagues (2002) which compares data collected from different hundred papers on non-visual photoreceptors studied in different animal species, humans included, the pineal organs (mainly called pineal "glands") represent a differentiated form of encephalic photoreceptors.

Considering this vulnerability, an important neurophysiological correlate, high levels of cortisol secretion are manifested in subjects between the ages of 15 and 17 due to the functional increase of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis (HPA) and the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis (HPG), even higher than in late infancy and/or early puberty (Gunnar, Wewerka, Frenn, Long & Griggs, 2009; Ortiz, Wendy, Silverman, Jaccard & La Greca, 2011), considering that the exposure to intense stress could induce structural changes in the hormonal expression of encephalic receptors - and therefore - in the behavioral response to future stress situations (Blaustein & Ismail, 2013).
This finding, together with the technique's apparent biological plausibility --inasmuch as the vagus nerve affords access to encephalic structures traditionally linked to neuropsychiatric disorders (12,13)--led to studies being undertaken on the technique's indication for use in the treatment of depression.
Unsupervised learning is to train a model with unlabeled data (without a human-labeled process), infers a function to describe hidden structures that usually invisible to humans, and could bring new discoveries, such as new encephalic region relevant to Alzheimer's disease [14] and new impact factors of cardiovascular diseases beyond human's recognition [4].
