How does your body know what time it is?

How does light affect your internal body clock? Does getting older affect your body's ability to keep time?


How does light affect your internal body clock? Does getting older affect your body's ability to keep time? Discuss with Professor Debra Skene how disorders arise in your body clock, and how they can be treated, particularly in blind and visually impaired people.

Professor Debra Skene is Professor of Neuroendocrinology at University of Surrey. Her research focusses on the investigation of the causes, consequences and treatment of circadian rhythm disorders.
