[Smithsonian] Nobel Prize Awarded to Three Scientists Who Mapped the Body’s Internal Clock

The protein, called PER, builds up while the organism is resting at night, blocking the activity of the gene. Then during the day, the protein degrades. This cycle serves as a clock for the body, Hall and Rosbash found.

But how the gene blocked the activity of "period" remained unknown until Young, working independently, identified a second gene dubbed "timeless." This gene helped PER access the cell's nucleus and block the "period" gene's activity, reports Nicola Davis and Ian Sample of the Guardian. He also identified a third gene dubbed "doubletime," writes Eunjung Cha, which helps control the length of the cycles.

Who wants to start a CRISPR genetic editing company that is going to ruin the entire coffee industry?

Correlation doesn't prove causation? Pretty sure the article is just light on details, curious on the actual biological/neurological pathways.

This always has me wondering, I'm someone who is not a morning person by any means, however during the night my brain always goes into overdrive. Even during my college years, I could study 3-4 times better during the 10pm-3am period, than any period in the day. My brain would retain more of that information, and I could much easier solve problems during that time. That has stayed true even now, almost 8 years later. Does that mean that my biological clock is off balance(or not standard) to begin with?

I've always suffered from sleep problems, due to how our society functions, as such I would always have to get up at 6-7am, but I could not for the life of me fall asleep until after 3 am. Now that I work for myself, I tend to just work late at night on admin work and problem-solving, and I don't schedule any meetings with clients until at least 11 am so I can sleep in. Sometimes I still get a stubborn client and have to schedule for the early morning. Those are the days I dread haha.

Same here.
Cant get asleep before 2-3am unless I take sleeping pills. Its stupid since ill be tired all day until about 7-8pm then I feel wide awake and full of energy.
Getting up at 6:30AM is hell every day, Even if I take my sleeping pills and get to sleep at 8pm it makes no difference then just going to sleep at 3am so thats what I do lol.

Yeah this exact same issue here. It doesn't matter even if I get 8 hours of sleep or hell even 10 hours of sleep. If I don't sleep IN until 10am-11am, I will feel drained all day until around 7-8pm just like you, and by the time its 10pm I am at my peek awareness. Only reason I attempt to get my 8 hours of sleep is that even though I know that I FEEL tired, the 8 hours still help me function and I'm sure are a lot more healthy for me than me getting my typical 3 hours haha.

Same here. Peek awareness at around 10pm. Interesting video linked below that details how some portion of our species are genetically inclined to be night owls.

I'm the same way, would be interesting if they could test are genes someday for this circadian rhythm and see if ours works differently or something.
