New research at Oregon State University provides evidence for the first time that disruption of circadian rhythms – the biological...
The molecular pathway that carries time-of-day signals from the body’s internal clock to ultimately guide daily behavior is like a...
Discovery of key link between circadian rhythms and metabolism may lead to new therapies for sleep disorders and diabetes. The...
A study shows for the first time that certain nutrients may play an underlying role in short and long sleep duration and that people who report eating a large variety of foods; an indicator of an overall healthy diet, had the healthiest sleep patterns.
Researchers discover evidence of altered circadian rhythms and disrupted brain gene orchestration in patients with major depression.
Researchers discover circadian rhythms can boost the body's ability to fight intestinal infections such as salmonella.
Researchers report the discovery of a crucial part of the biological clock: the wiring that sets its accuracy to within a few minutes out of the 1440 minutes per day. The wiring uses GABA to connect the individual cells of the biological clock in a fast network which changes strength with the time of day.
A new study reveals how the production of p75NTR protein oscillates in time with the body's natural circadian rhythm and how these oscillations help regulate vital metabolic functions. The findings offer an insight into how circadian rhythm helps maintain the body's overall metabolic health.
Prader-Willi syndrome, a genetic disorder characterized by an insatiable appetite, is associated with the loss of non-coding RNAs; resulting in dysregulation of the circadian and metabolic genes.
Researchers link disrupted sleep and circadian rhythm as risk factors for alcoholic liver disease.
