Biological clock - can they be set up and managed
Many things are subject to man, butbiological clock he can not control. Although such management would significantly simplify and even to some extent solve many problems arising at work. For example, work that must be in different shifts, adapting to other time zones after air travel.
This area of science is still inadequatestudied by scientists, but at the University of Douglas, three scientists were able to find ways to influence the course of biological clocks. This was done by Mark Kuest, Diane Boyvin and Nicholas Tchermakyan.
All human actions throughout the dayare due to the circadian system. It consists of a central clock, the location of which is in the brain, as well as many other clocks that are located throughout the body.
In the experiment, 16 people participated,it is in a specially equipped place in complete isolation, for obtaining accurate results. So, it was possible to establish that in the leukocytes the second kind of clock was laid, and it can be influenced by the use of glucocorticoid drugs.
Each person has internalbiological clock and so is arranged by nature that a person is able to stay awake without disturbing them only during the day. Night residents also put their health at considerable risk and risk becoming owners of various health problems. So you should expect the emergence or worsening of cardiovascular diseases, metabolic disorders and the emergence of even cancer.
As you know, shifts can be at night andthis is largely a threat to the body. According to scientists who conducted the study, circadian clocks, prone to desynchronization, contribute to worsening of sleep and heart function, as well as a decrease in productivity. The proposed methods of treatment of the problem are not able to correct the problem, and to some extent may even aggravate it.
Until now, scientists have not been fully studiedthe biological clock of a person who reconstructs the entire body during waking hours during waking hours. Presumably everything comes from the central clock, which is located in the brain, it is from here that signals are sent to the rest of the human body. The use of glucocorticoids allows you to move incoming signals through the body.
While scientists recommend the use of workersnight shifts of glucocorticoid drugs in order to change the biological clock. However, long-term admission remains in the risk zone, but scientists continue to investigate the problem and it is likely that a method will soon be found that allows to modify and adjust both peripheral and central biological clocks.
