In this post I will be helping you learn a bit more about this condition by giving you with an intro to seasonal affective disorder. To begin I’ll first describe how sunlight affects your body’s creation of the hormone melatonin. When the sun goes in during the night this functions as a signal for your body to start out making and releasing melatonin. Melatonin enables you to feel sleepy and assists your body shut straight down for the entire night. Then in the morning when the sun comes back out, the light works as a result in for your body to avoid making and releasing melatonin which helps you wake up. That is your body’s normal procedure for regulating rest cycles. In the winter months sunlight amounts are much lower with the sunlight coming out later and moving in earlier.Larschan led a group of researchers at Brown University in identifying a protein which allows a male fruit fly to double the genetic expression of its one X-chromosome. That advantage, if proven comparable in human males, could point the true way to treatments for diseases like cancer or schizophrenia, which are associated with unusual gene regulation.
