Item description for Biological Clocks by Susan Binkley...
Designed as an "operator's manual," this lively guide introduces students and lay readers to the subject of human chronobiology. It describes biological clocks and the methods used to measure rhythms of humans and animals. It explains how we are synchronized with our 24-hour environment using time cues and how external time cue deprivation affects activity and rest times in the individual's inherited "biological watch." The book details how our clocks adjust to travel across time zones, shift work alterations, and change between standard and daylight time. Also contains information and blank forms so that the reader can measure his/her own rhythms and apply the results to improve daily activity and wellness.
