Keeping Time: Mapping the Biological Clock’s Wiring and What Happens When We Ignore the Clocks in Our Brains

Thursday, November 7, 2013 @ 1:00 PM-2:30 PM

On Science Series

This event is full as of Friday, November 1, 2013. Accepting WAIT LIST registrations below.

Featured Speaker: Erik Herzog, Ph.D., Professor of Biology in Arts & Sciences, Washington University

Daylight savings time, shift work, school start times, medical intern and long haul trucking schedules, artificial light, international travel… our technologically advanced lives pit us in a precarious battle against the natural rhythms of our biological clocks; and this battle, can throw off more than sleep. Responsible not only for regulating sleep/wake cycles, our internal clocks play an important role in cell division and metabolism control. Recent discoveries by Erik Herzog and his Washington University colleagues about the wiring of our biological clocks have important implications for public health and the consequences of ignoring the clocks in our brains.
