Initial theories focused on melatonin suppression and shifts in estrogen; but more recently, attention has been drawn to circadian cycles
and their disruption.
There is growing evidence that this decoupling from the natural circadian cycle
can have long-term health consequences that are much more far-reaching than tiredness.
It's important to keep a pattern that matches your circadian cycle
The observation is the first time scientists have discovered a way to control the amplitude--rather than the timing--of the circadian cycle
Nearly 5,000 genes in the mouse liver follow a circadian cycle
that corresponds to mealtimes, Panda and his colleagues reported in the Dec.
Despite sufficient flexibility and numerous adaptation mechanisms to regularly occurring events, some alterations of the circadian cycle
go beyond the limits of one's system ability to compensate for (Fig.
Scheer and colleagues, symptoms of metabolic syndrome resulted when participants ate and slept at the wrong times--that is, out of alignment with their habitual circadian cycle
He said: "Sleeping during the day can throw off your circadian cycle
and impact future sleep.
Under the project, entitled "A Spectrally Dynamic Berth Light for Active Circadian Cycle
Management," Energy Focus will further develop solid-state lighting technology for a naval berth light that will effectively reset a sailor's body clock for environments where the natural circadian rhythm is frequently disrupted.
In an attempt to get a better understanding of the effects that shift work has on people, their health, their performance, and their families, it is necessary to look at the history of shift work and the circadian cycle
The circadian cycle
signals your brain to wake and sleep, so stick to your body's circadian rhythm.
Results showed that this colony, subjected to a light-reversal circadian cycle
The level of the disturbance is similar to that seen in clinical insomnia, and the mechanism seems to be a disruption of the normal circadian cycle
of sleep and activity
This point of view tends to shortchange the two thirds to three fourths of each circadian cycle
where "the action" usually resides.
The functioning of all biochemistry in our bodies depends on the circadian cycle
, which is itself dependent on environmental rhythms.
