DiscussBody Clocks
« on: 27/09/2016 18:16:27 »

Whichever you are, your daily rhythm is determined by your circadian clock - powered by a small group of cells in the brain - and it tells you when to get up and when to sleep.

Kat Arney spoke to him to find out more about this molecular alarm clock.
