JBR on Human Rhythms

When I started out ten years ago it was possible to follow the literature of the entire field of chronobiology. Since then the field has grown so big it is difficult to find time to read all the papers even in one's own narrow specialty!

Thus, I love it when a journal publishes one of those "special issues" as that is a great way to quickly catch up with parts of the field one does not work in.

Journal of Biological Rhythms, the best journal in the field, has just come out with an issue devoted to Human Circadian Rhythms: Regulation and Impact. It contains nine long in-depth reviews on various aspects of human chronobiology.

As my readers tend to be more interested in human clocks than in the stuff I am interested in (clock evolution), I feel it is my obligation to read those reviews and to summarize them here. I intend to do so over the next several days, so check this space every now and then...

Circadiana Made Make

Thanks to Anton for heads-up that Circadiana got mentioned and prasied on the Make Magazine. I noticed a rise in hits although I am not posting here very frequently over the summer - this is primarily an educational blog and it is vacation time now. You can see a screenshot here and the whole article here.

Mood Rhythms

You can track a composite circadian rhythm of sleepiness and other moods of many LiveJournal bloggers over a period of a week at this wonderful site: Moodgrapher. I would like to see hours of the day on the X-axis, as well as an explicit note stating that (if?) the time is local time for each blogger.
