Elise Facer-Childs is currently a Doctoral Researcher working at the University of Birmingham on sleep, circadian rhythms and neuroimaging. She works with human participants to uncover the impact that our body clocks can have on brain structure and function, genetics, physiology and performance.
Elise has presented her research at an International Conference for the European Biological Rhythms Society (EBRS)/World Chronobiology Congress (WCC) and has given presentations at the UK’s largest circadian conferences (UK Clock Club).
In This Episode We Discuss
Understanding circadian phenotypes
Neuroimaging (fMRI) to understand how the brain is affected by time of day
Time of day vs. time relative to internal circadian clock
Practical implications for “night owls” and “morning larks”
Personal best performance times differ significantly between circadian phenotypes
Circadian phase shifting
