A recent study has demonstrated that circadian rhythms in mice may control the extent of response to vaccination of CD8 T cells to antigen presentation by dendritic cells.
Looking at your phone in the middle of the night won’t affect your body’s overall circadian rhythm, researchers suggest, as short-term and long-term exposure to light is processed via different pathways.
A new study has determined that a simple change to the sleeping patterns of people known as ‘night owls’ can decrease depression and stress.
Researchers have suggested that inducing jet lag in fruit fly models of Huntington’s disease may have a neuroprotective benefit.
Night owls and morning larks have been reported to have fundamental differences in their brain function, according to a new study.
Jeffrey C. Hall, Michael Rosbash and Michael W. Young receive the award for their work on the molecular mechanisms controlling circadian rhythms.
This Review from Neurodegenerative Disease Management explores light therapy for Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, and how to maximize treatment impact.
In this edition of our new column, #NCintroduces, Tom Naughton (UCL Cancer Institute) introduces the complex world of chronobiology and circadian rhythms.
In circadian rhythm sleep–wake disorders precision medicine is less developed than in other medical disciplines mainly because homeostatic sleep and circadian timing have a very complex phenotype with multiple genetic regulation mechanisms.
