In life, timing is everything. There is a new buzzword in cancer therapy, Chronobiology. Simply put, this means the study of clocklike stuff in living things. Or you can use the brainier definition, Chronobiology is the quantitative study of rhythmic temporal relationships in biological phenomena. Our bodies go through a day as if multiple clocks were hardwired into our brains, organs, and very cells telling us what to do and when to do it. In recent years scientists have just begun to understand these multiple rhythms of activity and rest that different systems in the body go through on a daily basis. These daily, or circadian, cycles repeat themselves every 24 hours. Cells dont grow at a constant rate; rather there are bursts of frantic cell division followed by rest spells. Hormones are not generated at a steady flow rate but have high points when they are dumped into the blood and low points throughout the day. All animals have built in clocks in not just their bodies but in their ...
The science of chronobiology quantifies the time structure characterizing each physiologic variable, its genetically anchored and mostly environmentally synchronized chronome. Thereby, one gains new information and thus a new dimension to the care of ones health and the integrity of ones environment. The importance of chronobiologic information has been compared with the importance of the energy released by splitting the atom. This science ushers in a new era by allowing one to do more than asking only whether a time-unspecified measurement or a series of such casual measurements or even a series of systematic measurements covering a day or a week is too high or too low. Instead, one can rely on a rhythm-adjusted mean (the MESOR) that as compared to the arithmetic mean is more accurate and more precise. As a dividend (which may be more important under certain conditions than the best average value), chronobiology also pro- vides new information on the extent of predictable since rhythmic changes (the

Chronobiology is the study of biological rhythms. It examines the effects of time on biological events and internal biological clocks. Over the past few decades, chronobiology has developed into a multidisciplinary field of interest in general medicine and psychiatry (1). Research on chronobiology is constantly growing and has contributed to the development of an interdisciplinary field of research. The Nobel Prize in Medicine in 2017 was awarded to scientists who investigated molecular mechanisms that control circadian rhythms.. The earths rotation and the daily light-dark or day-night cycle have had long and constant biological impacts on the earths living organisms. Over the long evolutionary process, organisms have developed clock-like structures. These biological clocks help organisms successfully perform their activities over a 24-h cycle. This adaptive ability predicts cyclic changes and allows behavioral and physiological harmonization. These endogenous clocks are useful because they ...

The evolving science of Chronobiology demonstrates that all body systems have a biorhythm or circadian rhythm that serve as physiological indicators that have a timing effect on specific systems metabolism. Nutrients and drugs give a more desired effect when given at a time that best matches this metabolism. This is called Chronobiology and is generating clinical studies that demonstrate certain drugs have a significantly different result if given in the AM as opposed to the PM. For example, since the liver is regenerating itself on a daily circadian basis in the early morning, antioxidants (i.e. Glutathione, N-Acetylcysteine) to help strengthen and support the liver are given in the IDNutrition™ PM packet. Because the pain of Osteoarthritis is generally late in the afternoon, the Joint and Inflammatory Support formulas are optimal if given in the IDNutrition™ AM packet. IDNutrition™ is delivering the optimal dose at the optimal time of day.. ...

A. External cues (other than the entraining stimulus) that might provide timing stimuli to the animal should be avoided. This might seem axiomatic. For example, the most important entraining stimulus for mammals is light. As a result, most circadian biologists would not accept any phenomenon as circadian in nature unless it was demonstrated in continuous darkness (DD).. Nevertheless, this standard is often not observed. For example in the original studies demonstrating food entrainment (see review by Stephan [3]), animals were permitted to remain on a light-dark (LD) cycle. While the use of LD insured that the light entrained rhythm and the food entrained rhythm would remain temporally separated, the light also provides a temporal cue for food presentation. A number of recent food entrainment studies including those by Mistlberger in which he has done dorsomedial hypothalamic (DMH) lesions [4, 5], have continued to be performed only under LD. However, if animals are entrained under LD, and food ...

Ronald J. Konopka (1947-2015) was an American geneticist who studied chronobiology. He made his most notable contribution to the field while working with Drosophila in the lab of Seymour Benzer at the California Institute of Technology. During this work, Konopka discovered the period (per) gene, which controls the period of circadian rhythms. Ron Konopka received his Ph.D. in Biology from the California Institute of Technology in 1972. In 1975, following his discovery of the period mutants, Konopka was awarded a faculty position at the California Institute of Technology. While there, Konopkas colleagues were critical of his reluctance to publish his work on the period gene, and Konopka was denied tenure. After his stay at Caltech, Konopka accepted a position at Clarkson University but was again denied tenure and subsequently exited the field of science. Konopkas career, interwoven with the work of his mentor, Seymour Benzer, and the other scientists working in Benzers lab is narrated in Time, ...

As chief of the division of sleep and chronobiology in the department of psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, David F. Dinges, Ph.D., focuses on ways sleep and the endogenous circadian pacemaker interact to control wakefulness and waking neurobehavioral functions such as physiological alertness, attention, cognitive performance, fatigue, mood, neuroendocrine profiles, immune responses and health. In an interview with Psychiatric Times, Dinges discussed neurobehavioral consequences of sleep loss, factors that impair sleeping, the pervasiveness of sleepiness and new ways to manage sleepiness. 1
Published in the journal BMC Biology, these results show for the first time that directly targeting the biological clock in a cancerous tumour has an impact on its development.. Most of the cells in the human body have an internal clock that sets a rhythm for the activities of our organs according to the time of the day. Cancer cells, however, often have a non-functioning or malfunctioning clock.. "There were indications suggesting that the malfunctioning clock contributed to rapid tumour growth, but this had never been demonstrated. Thanks to the use of a chemical or a thermic treatment, we succeeded in repairing these cells clock and restoring it to its normal functioning. In these conditions, tumour growth drops nearly in half," explains Cermakian, who is also Director of the Laboratory of Molecular Chronobiology at the Douglas Mental Health University Institute, one of the research centres of the CIUSSS de lOuest-de-lÎle-de-Montréal.. Although this preclinical demonstration was done ...
Chronobiology and Neuroscience Research in the Cassone laboratory is directed at the mechanisms and neuroendocrine pathways by which the biological clock regulates physiology and behavior in vertebrates, especially in birds. All eukaryotic and at least some prokaryotic organisms express a temporal organization as well as a spatial organization such that many molecular, physiological and behavioral events are strictly timed. This temporal organization reflects a biological clock derived primarily from endogenous cellular oscillators that are somehow coupled or entrained to the prevailing environmental cycles. Recently, we have become interested inmechanisms by which the circadian clock regulates gastrointestinal function. Part of this research has revealed an enteric bacterium, Klebsiella aerogenes, that exhibits a circadian rhythm in swarming behavior and gene expression. We are investigating the mechanisms that generate circadian rhythms in this bacterial organism. Students in the laboratory ...
The clock in the SCN is the major controller overall for timing, but when we face environmental mismatches that specifically involve the use of any particle/waveform tied to QED, it increases the likelihood that we can have desynchronization of the SCN from the peripheral clocks. It appears the brain has a dual timing mechanism. It has the older analog clock that responds in a graded fashion to one photon of light of many. The SCN and Pineal gland seem to be big players in the analog system. The retina and visual apparatus are the newer part of the clock called the digital system. They use a binary code of off and on with light. The action potential of the optic nerve is all or none. When light is present at the human eye ROS and ELF-UV light is released from cells. (van Wijk). When we have desynchronization of the SCN from the peripheral organ clocks, we call this a phase shift in chronobiology. This is how we lose track of Quantum time (small time) that I mentioned in EMF 6. Moreover, this ...

Not so smart after all: Memories of what you learned and experienced yesterday are consolidated during REM sleep. Deep sleep may also be involved in this process. Disrupted sleep means disrupted learning. Difficulty with weight management: Sleep disruption affects the hormones that regulate hunger as well as our level of physical activity. Recurrent sleep deprivation increases our desire for high-calorie foods and may make us more prone to weight gain, research suggests. A 2006 study found that each hour of social jet lag was associated with a 33 percent higher risk of obesity.. Infections: Ongoing sleep deprivation and disruption are associated with weakened immune function, potentially leaving us less able to fight off viruses like the common cold.. Temptation to drink and smoke: Social jet lag is a risk factor for more than academic failure; it can also lead to increased use of alcohol, cigarettes, and caffeine, according to a 2006 study in Chronobiology International..
