Circadian Clocks: Role in Health and Disease (Physiology in Health and Disease)

Editat de Michelle L. Gumz
Notă GoodReads:
en Limba Engleză Hardback – March 2016
This book sheds new light on the molecular mechanisms that generate circadian rhythms. It examines how biological rhythms influence physiological processes such as sleep, hormone synthesis and secretion, immunity, kidney function, the cardiovascular system, blood pressure, and the digestive system. Clinical implications are considered while exploring the impact of rhythms on neuropsychiatric disorders and chronotherapy’s potential for reducing cardiovascular risk. Offering a cross-section of expertise in both basic and translational (bench-to-bedside) research, this book serves as a guide for physicians and scientists who wish to learn more about the impact of circadian rhythms on physiological processes in health and disease.

Recenzii

“The audience is scientists or students interested in the role circadian clocks play in modulating the functions of physiological systems. … This is a high quality, comprehensive treatment of a very complex field of physiology. It is written in a logical, understandable manner that makes it easier to comprehend difficult topics. … Doctoral students in physiology will find their understanding of homeostasis and human survival enhanced by this book. It is an excellent contribution to the field of physiology.” (David R. Bell, Doody's Book Reviews, August, 2016)
