Are "morning people" biologically different?
« on: 01/10/2010 22:30:02 »
Alex Ristea  asked the Naked Scientists:
   
There are "morning people", and there are those who can barely function in the morning.  Is being a morning person something biological, or is it simply a factor of culture and/or personal lifestyle?

Thanks!

Alex        

What do you think?

I think it's a combination.  You might tend to be one way and then train your body and set your internal clock to reinforce the habit.

Perhaps these 'morning people' produce melatonin in greater quantities or faster than the rest of us.

On the other hand, perhaps they just like annoying us normal people.
