+ - SPAM: Fasting May Fix Jet Lag

Submitted by

stoolpigeon writes "Reuters reports on a Harvard Medical School study on sleep patterns and how they relate to food. Researchers already knew that the sleep patterns of mice would change to match the opportunity to feed, but they did not know the mechanism that enabled the change. What I thought was most interesting was how the researchers looked for the part of the brain at work. They bred mice without a certain master gene, and then target various parts of the brain with the gene, delivered in the shell of a virus. The results may among other things, provide a new method for preparing to deal with jet lag."
