Early risers have significantly weaker sleep spindle activity than those who prefer to stay up late at night, a new study reveals.
Researchers reveal the role hundreds of miRNAs appear to play in modulating circadian rhythm.
People who are genetically predisposed to be "early birds" only take a few days to adjust to time changes as a result of daylight savings. Night owls can take over a week to adjust to the time change.
Advanced sleep phase may affect as many as one in 300 people, and may be the result of a genetic trait.
Yesterday, the Nobel Assembly at the Karolinska Institute announced the 2017 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine is to be awarded jointly to Jeffrey C. Hall, Michael Rosbash and Michael W. Young for their work unraveling the molecular mechanisms behind circadian rhythm.
Researchers have identified novel neural pathways that help regulate sleep and wakefulness.
Following a 12 year long study, researchers have identified seven phenoclasses that can help doctors to diagnose and track the progression of bipolar disorder in patients.
Study shows how circadian clock mechanisms boost our ability to maintain our bodies when we are most active.
