Bad night's sleep? The moon might be to blame | Elsevier Connect

Bad night's sleep? The moon might be to blame | Elsevier Connect


Many people complain about poor sleep around the full moon, and now a report just published in Current Biology, a Cell Press publication, offers some of the first convincing scientific evidence to suggest that this really is true. The findings add to evidence that humans — despite the comforts of our civilized world — still respond to the geophysical rhythms of the moon, driven by a circalunar clock. The  'Current Biology' journal is available from the Library by searching the Ejournal listings or via the Science Direct database.

Research points to new treatments for inflammatory bowel diseases - Science News | Daily News from The Irish Times - Mon, Jul 29, 2013

 Irish researchers led by a group in NUI Maynooth have made an important discovery that could lead to new treatments for inflammatory bowel diseases.
They confirmed the role of a protein that protects against the effects of the disease and hope a drug could be developed to reduce the difficult symptoms of inflammatory bowel in conditions such as Crohn’s disease.
