Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Inside every one of us is a cellular timekeeper ticking away. It gives us the cues for all manner of changes in our bodies. It's called the circadian rhythm. In this video segment, find out how our understanding of the body clock has been revolutionized and what happens when the body clock comes unsprung. New studies show that each cell actually contains all the requirements for keeping time, and more data has come in to support the idea that a vulnerability in the body clock is a primary cause for mood disorders.
