This website is dedicated to the history, findings and advancements of Chronobiology.
Chronobiology is a field of biology that studies how our body’s natural cycles—mental, physical and emotional—are affected by solar and lunar rhythms. For example, the circadian rhythm, a 24-hour cycle of physiological processes that happen throughout the human body, is a vital cycle in the study of chronobiology.
When these processes break down, or abnormalities occur in the human body, it’s the study of chronobiology that could be the solution.
