Its about Time! The role of body clocks in health and disease

Annie Curtis reports

How metabolic and immune parameters vary across the 24 hours (1).

Body clocks tend to garner quite a bit of attention from the media. Folks are obsessed with sleep, either they cant get enough or they are getting too much, and all of us can relate to the symptoms of jet lag and morning versus evening types. Therefore it’s a great topic to discuss with wider audiences. I really enjoy chatting with people about the implications of our internal timing system and that research now shows that living in synchrony with your body clock can improve overall health. For the SFI Science week I was asked to provide an interview to the Daily Star called “The Science of Sleep Explained”. I was also asked to go on the “Alive and Kicking” show on Newstalk Radio with Ciara Kelly, you can listen to the interview: What type of sleeper are you? Are you an owl or a lark?

    the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal.
    Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

  6. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?

    I mean, what you say is important and everything.
    However just imagine if you added some great pictures or video clips to
    give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this website could undeniably be one of
    the greatest in its niche. Amazing blog!

  7. It’s appropriate time to make a few plans for the longer term and it is
    time to be happy. I’ve learn this submit and if I may just I want to

  9. I have been surfing on-line greater than 3 hours lately,
    but I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like

    content material as you probably did, the internet might be a lot more helpful than ever before.

    And i am glad reading your article. But wanna remark on some general things, The website style is perfect, the articles is really excellent : D.

    today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.

    did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.

    it’s time to be happy. I’ve read this put up and if I may I
    wish to counsel you few interesting issues or tips.

    I want to read even more issues about it!

    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appearance.

    Outstanding Blog!
