Circadian Clocks: Role in Health and Disease, Hardback Book

Circadian Clocks: Role in Health and Disease Hardback

Edited by Michelle L. Gumz

Part of the Physiology in Health and Disease series


This book sheds new light on the molecular mechanisms that generate circadian rhythms.

It examines how biological rhythms influence physiological processes such as sleep, hormone synthesis and secretion, immunity, kidney function, the cardiovascular system, blood pressure, and the digestive system.

Clinical implications are considered while exploring the impact of rhythms on neuropsychiatric disorders and chronotherapy's potential for reducing cardiovascular risk.

Offering a cross-section of expertise in both basic and translational (bench-to-bedside) research, this book serves as a guide for physicians and scientists who wish to learn more about the impact of circadian rhythms on physiological processes in health and disease.
