The Theory Of The Circadian Rhythm

- When most people think of sleep, they think of it as a relaxed but yet not a very important part of our daily lives. What most people don’t understand is although we are not up and moving around and getting tasks completed, our brains are still very active. Without sleep our bodies do not function correctly on a daily basis, and our mental state is at risk. Our bodies rely on two different things to let our bodies know when we need to be asleep. One is called the circadian rhythm, which is the physical, mental and behavioral changes that follow a twenty four hour cycle, that revolves around the light and dark of the day....   [tags: Sleep, Sleep disorder, Circadian rhythm]

The Circadian Rhythm Is Maintained By The Suprachismatic Nucleus

- Further delving into the biology of fatigue, the circadian rhythm is maintained by the Suprachismatic Nucleus (SCN), which is a bundle of cells in the hypothalamus section of the brain. This section responds to signals originating from light and dark. Light signals tell the body it’s time to be awake while dark signals tell it to go to sleep. The SCN is also able to signal other aspects of sleep/wakefulness such as hormones (cortisol/melatonin) and body temperature (NSF, n.d.) Disruption to our body’s homeostasis and circadian rhythm can be particularly disorientating for individuals in the aviation community, with symptoms ranging from general difficulty thinking (mental manifestation) to...   [tags: Sleep, Sleep deprivation, Circadian rhythm]

Biological Rhythm of Sleeping and Narcolepsy

Approximately ever ninety minutes, we cycle through four sleep stages, NREM 1, NREM 2, NREM 3, and REM sleep.
