Melatonin improves mood in winter depression

... study, they concluded that, similar to persistent jet lag, circadian misalignment is a major part of SAD. Most patients, typically phase-delayed types or "night owls," have misalignment that responded best to taking low-dose melatonin in the afternoon or evening. A longer-than-expected subgroup of SAD...

"We adapted some ideas from that research to build a scatterometer for food safety, and now we're using the second generation of that instrument," Hirleman said. A major motivation for the research is to reduce the time it takes for indu...

New fruit fly protein illuminates circadian response to light

...in response to light. The human condition known as jet lag takes place during the period when the body is attempting to resynchronize to the environmental light changes brought on by travel, namely from one time zone to another.

In mammals, however, Cry assists in the 24-hour rhythmic expression of clock genes and has nothing to do with re-setting t...

Some like it hot: Worms at deep-sea vents favor a fiery 45-55°C

...es, water will not boil, so deep-sea thermal vents jet out water that remains liquid at temperatures of up to 350 degrees Celsius (662 degrees Fahrenheit). Because the surrounding seawater is barely above freezing, a steep and variable temperature gradient exists around the thermal vents, making it diffi...
