Light’s Out: Understanding Circadian Rhythms

Presenter:   Dr. Charles Hinshaw Jr.

Thursday, October 11, 2012

12:00 pm to 1:00 pm

Circadian rhythms are important in determining the sleeping and feeding patterns of all animals, including human beings. Circadian rhythm disorders are disruptions in a person’s “internal body clock,” and can be caused by many factors, including: shift work, pregnancy, time zone changes, medications, and changes in routine.  Dr. Hinshaw will discuss the link between circadian rhythms and the clear patterns of biological activities linked to this daily cycle.
