Our bodies have a natural way of adjusting themselves to the day-night cycle. Many of us know that these are our 'biological clocks' or 'circadian rhythms.' However, when behavioral or lifestyle changes interfere with this clock - such as in the case of jet lag - the result is sleepiness and an overall feeling of confusion. New research uncovers a group of cells involved in regulating the sleep-wake cycle and suggests that in the future, we might be able to treat jet lag using this knowledge.
