Mendoza, J. Nighttime Light Hurts Mammalian Physiology: What Diurnal Rodent Models Are Telling Us. Clocks & Sleep 2021, 3, 236-250. https://doi.org/10.3390/clockssleep3020014 Abstract Natural sunlight permits organisms to synchronize their physiology to the external world. However, in current times, natural sunlight has been replaced by artificial light in both day and nighttime. While in the daytime, indoor artificial light...

Science  04 Sep 2020:Vol. 369, Issue 6508, pp. 1164-1165DOI: 10.1126/science.abd4964 Summary Circadian rhythms, or the body clock, confer temporal structure on human behavior and physiology to align homeostatic processes with anticipated changes in the environment. Disruption of these rhythms can influence health and well-being. Chronobiological research has often failed to consider how this temporal organization may...

Pflugers Arch. 2018 Feb;470(2):227-239. doi: 10.1007/s00424-017-2103-y. Epub 2018 Jan 4. Life on earth is shaped by the 24-h rotation of our planet around its axes. To adapt behavior and physiology to the concurring profound but highly predictable changes, endogenous circadian clocks have evolved that drive 24-h rhythms in invertebrate and vertebrate species. At the molecular level,...
