ANAT 3105 - CLOCKS, SLEEP AND BIOLOGICAL TIME
The aim of this third year course is to give a broad introduction to the importance of "time" and oscillations in a number of biological systems. The main focus will be on the role and function of the circadian or "daily" clock found in almost all species of animals and plants, which controls most aspects of physiology and behaviour. One only has to consider how rhythmic our own physiology is, and how "day-active" we are as a species. Other topics covered in this course will include circadian clock regulation of sleep, as well as the role of the clock in animal navigation and annual changes, such as seasonal breeding and hibernation.
