A run of poor sleep can have a potentially profound effect on the internal workings of the human body, say UK researchers. The activity of hundreds of genes was altered when people’s sleep was cut to less than six hours a day for a week. Writing in the journal┬áPNAS, the researchers said the results helped […]

‘Molecular basis’ for Jet Lag Found

Scientists believe they have figured out why it takes us so long to adapt when we travel to new time zones. Researchers at Oxford University say they have found the “molecular brakes” that prevent light resetting the body clock when we fly – causing jet lag. Experiments,┬áreported in the journal Cell, showed “uncoupling” these brakes […]
