Sleep and systems biology researchers from the University of Surrey found that jet lag or working the late shift could have a significant impact on health.
Researchers at the University of Cincinnati (UC) have identified key molecular components linking circadian rhythms and cell division cycles in Neurospora crassa, providing insights that could lead to improved disease treatments and drug delivery.
A high-fat diet affects the molecular mechanism controlling the internal body clock that regulates metabolic functions in the liver.
Tricking algae's biological clock to remain in its daytime setting can dramatically boost the amount of valuable compounds that these simple marine plants can produce when they are grown in constant light.
New research finds that marine animals have not only a built-in circadian clock, but also a separate internal clock that helps them follow tidal patterns.
Researchers have reportedly located a biological trigger for jet lag -- a discovery that could lead to the development of new drugs designed to help people recover more quickly from travel into new time zones.
Many factors keep us from getting a good night’s sleep. Prime culprits include overnight flights across the ocean, graveyard shifts, and stress-induced insomnia.
Most of our physiological functions fluctuate throughout the day.
Inside each of us is our own internal timing device.
- A small wooded valley; a dell.
- The protecting weather-shed built around the entrance to a house.
- The roofed-over space between the kitchen and the sleeping-quarters in a logging-camp, commonly used as a storeroom.
