Chronobiology

Chronobiology is a field of science that examines periodic (cyclic) phenomena in living organisms and their adaptation to solar and lunar related rhythms.

These cycles are known as biological rhythms. “Chrono” pertains to time and “biology” pertains to the study, or science, of life. The related terms chronomics and chronome have been used in some cases to describe either the molecular mechanisms involved in chronobiological phenomena or the more quantitative aspects of chronobiology, particularly where comparison of cycles between organisms is required.

Chronobiological studies include but are not limited to comparative anatomy, physiology, genetics, molecular biology and behavior of organisms within biological rhythms mechanics. Other aspects include development, reproduction, ecology and evolution.

Month of Birth Patterns North vs South hemispheres

Month-of-Birth Patterns in the Northern and Southern Hemisphere One of the first scholars to be interested in the effect of month of birth on longevity was Ellsworth Huntington. In his book “Seasonality” (1938) he described the relationship between the seasons of the year and social, psychological, and demographic phenomena. On the basis of 10,890 persons …

newly discovered compass protein lines magnetic fields

http://www.iflscience.com/plants-and-animals/newly-discovered-compass-protein-lines-magnetic-fields It took a long time for scientists to believe that animals were capable of sensing our planet’s magnetic field, and while we now know this so-called magnetoreception is very much a real phenomenon, researchers have yet to grasp a deep understanding of how this is achieved. Now, scientists are starting to piece together this …

Tchijevsky’s Theory of Sunspot Activity and Human Activity

Translation 1: To test his hypothesis that sunspot cycle influenced human activity, Tchijevsky constructed an Index of Mass Human Excitability covering each year form 500 BC to 1922 AD. He then investigated the histories of 72 countries during that period, noting signs of human unrest such as wars, revolutions, riots, expeditions and migrations, plus the …

How the Sun Affects Our Minds

More than three-quarters of all instances of human unrest—battles, upheavals, riots, revolutions, and wars—occur during the periods of the maximum number of sunspots in the Sun… So powerful is this cosmic zeitgeber that it may even influence our physical size, our longevity, our mental stability, our propensity to violence, and possibly even what we consider our uniquely …

What do Kepler’s Elliptical orbits have to do with the Holidays?

Consider this; As the winter holidays approach, the earth is approaching the sun.  It is gaining velocity at an increasing rate.  This acceleration increases until the earth reaches perihelion.  Then it begins to move away and decrease acceleration until around July 4th. So here it is, just at the time that we start to mark …
