    • Yes, that's controlled by an internal biological clock.
    • At dusk, however, the insect is activated by an internal biological clock, which regulates most of its behaviors.
    • This helps set the internal biological clock that regulates your sleep and waking patterns.
    • The daily biological clock has been shown to be involved in autonomic cardiovascular regulation.
    • These results and others led Burning, in 1936, to propose the concept of an endogenous biological clock in animals modulated by daily cycles of light and dark.
    • Your circadian rhythm is regulated by a biological clock in your brain that usually makes you sleepy at night and ready to wake up in the morning.
    • As long ago as the early 1930s the German physiologist Erwin Bunning hypothesized that plants measure day length with an internal circadian clock - and biological clocks are now thought to be virtually ubiquitous.
    • The researchers removed the exercise wheels normally used to gauge mouse activity, because regular spins can help the mice reset their biological clocks, just as a daily walk might help a person sleep better at night.
    • His pivotal studies provided the foundation on which our understanding of biological clocks and their role in organizing migration, breeding, and other life-history events are based.
    • Don't drive at night if you can avoid it, as internal biological clocks encourage most people to sleep when it is dark.
    • For example, the question of time rhythms in human beings as biological organisms impinges directly on the question of the possibility of an internal biological clock.
    • It is not clear, however, whether this shift in response to experience is in fact a learned response or a biological clock adjustment based on physiology.
    • It was thought to be a biological clock set by the sun.
    • By depriving people of light and other external time cues, scientists have learned that most people's biological clocks work on a 25-hour cycle rather than a 24-hour one.
    • Scientists aren't sure why or how, but beavers' biological clocks (and thus their activity patterns) drift out of phase with the day/night cycle in winter.
    • It is most often used by shift workers, jet-lagged travelers and those with Seasonal Affective Disorder to help re-set biological clocks.
    • Like the world around us, our biological clocks are set to tick in cycles of approximately 24 hours.
    • We could reset the biological clock by exposing it to a temperature cycle.
    • Our biological clock is normally synchronised with the day-night cycle of the home country.
    • Prolonged periods of exposure to artificial light disrupt the body's circadian rhythms - the inner biological clocks honed over thousands of years of evolution to regulate behaviors such as sleep and wakefulness.
