Sleep & Circadian Rhythm
Your circadian rhythm is the 24-hour internal clock which drives many important aspects of your health, and sleeping well is part of this. Learn about how your genes impact your circadian rhythm and how this interacts with other health topics.
Seeing 3:30 or 4:00 on your clock each morning? There could be a physiological reason for this. Learn about the genetic variants linked to early waking insomnia and the connection to depression. (Member’s article)
New research shows that depression and bipolar disorder are linked to changes or disruption in circadian genes. Some people carry genetic variants in the circadian genes that make them more susceptible to circadian disruption.
