BMES 411 Chronoengineering I: Biological Rhythms in Health and Performance 3.0 Credits
Introduces students to the concepts of biological, and especially circadian, rhythmicity. Advances students' knowledge of biological time-keeping and adaptive functions of biological clocks. Topics include biochemical and physiological models of biological clocks, adjustment to environmental cycles, rhythms in behavior and physiological functions, sleep-wake cyclicity, adaptability of circadian systems, and influences of rhythms on human physiology and behavior. Designed to give students a thorough understanding of the role rhythms play in animal and human behavior, physiology, and medicine.
