The theory of Biorhythms is an up and coming topic.
Its founding fathers: Dr, Fliess, Dr. Swoboda, and
Dr. Teltsher discovered the 23 day physical 28 day sensitivity,
and 33 day Intellectual cycles around the turn of the century.
Today, biorhythms are being looked at and studied
from many different...
The purpose of the study was to determine an emergence
rhythm, its period, and the developmental stages susceptible to
emergence synchronization in the leafcutter bee Megachile rotundata
(Fabricius). An attempt was made to determine if an oxygen consumption
rhythm was present in the pupal and adult stages of the
The rhythms of emergence, oxygen consumption, and activity
were studied in Megachile rotundata with the object of comparing the
results to the major properties of the biological clock such as temperature
independence, susceptibility to light synchronization, and
entrainment. A further objective was to compare the three rhythms
to determine if...
Over 56,000 hours of locomotor activity of Taricha granulosa
were recorded using two types of low cylindrical plastic monitoring
chambers. This species shows distinct rhythms of activity under
normal day-night cycles, shortened day-night cycles, constant
darkness (DD) and constant light (LL). The rough-skinned newt is
day active and crepuscular. I...
Purpose: The general problem was to determine the relationship between biorhythms and injuries to college football participants representing Oregon State University. Procedures: The population consisted of one hundred and ninty two football players representing Oregon State University who participated in the intercollegiate football seasons of 1981 and 1982. Injury data...
Circadian clocks coordinate molecular, cellular, physiological, and behavioral processes with the 24-hour solar day. While clock functions are well understood in young animals, it is not clear how aging or neurodegenerative disease affects the various levels of the circadian system. A common symptom of many neurodegenerative diseases including Alzheimer’s disease...
Biorhythm theory proponents believe that humans have
a 23-day physical cycle, a 28-day emotional cycle, and a
33-day intellectual cycle. According to biorhythm theories
a person in the positive portion of any single cycle, the performance potential is enhanced for those tasks related to
that particular rhythm. When each cycle...
Circadian clocks are endogenous molecular mechanisms that coordinate daily rhythms in gene expression, cellular activities, and physiological functions with external day/night cycles. Breakdown of circadian rhythms such as sleep/wake cycles is associated with the onset of several neurological diseases; however, it is not clear whether disruption of rhythms is a...
