What is a circadian clock and how does living ‘out of time’ disrupt our health and wellbeing?

300 million years ago, evolution produced the earliest form of biological clock: life on our planet evolved with a 24-hour cycle of light and dark. Now, almost all living things follow a daily (‘circadian’) rhythm.

Join Dr Jacob Crouse, who is leading research on the links between circadian rhythms and mental and physical health. Learn how the circadian system influences the timing of almost all biological processes relevant to our wellbeing. Explore how many aspects of 21st century life cause our body clocks to come out of time, affecting our mental and physical health.

Bio

Dr Jacob Crouse is a research fellow at the University of Sydney’s Brain and Mind Centre. His research focuses on improving our understanding of the mechanisms by which mental health conditions like depression and bipolar disorder emerge, how they change over time and affect our health, as well as ability to work and study. Jacob is exploring the potential role of the circadian system in depression and bipolar disorders, using a variety of tools including wearables, nanotechnology, genetics and clinical trials of circadian-targeted therapies.
