Abstract

Humans usually show 24-hour sleep-wake cycles, which are geared by an inherent, interindividually varying biological clock. The behavioral daytime preferences differ according to the chronotype, which is in turn basically associated with the timing and controlling of the circadian rhythms of biological and psychological parameters. We were interested in the association between chronotype and the levels of cortisol and the clock gene hPER1 in the evening, and therefore examined 29 healthy men. Our data indicate that morning types show lower levels of cortisol and a lower gene expression of hPER1 in the evening.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
