Chronobiology

All life forms have biological processes that cycle with time. Each cell of your body has its own internal clock that influences genetic expression. These clocks can be influenced by various environmental inputs such as the specific nutrient composition of your food, the time you eat, and the wavelengths of light that bathe your eyes and skin. Aberrant signals can lead to molecular dyssynchrony, throwing the orchestra of cellular physiology into chaos.

Chronobiology is the study of these biological rhythms and their medical significance. In this module, we learn to clinically influence these rhythms to promote harmonious, optimal health.
