Multiple-color optical activation, silencing, and desynchronization of neural activity, with single-spike temporal resolution.
People whose jobs require them to work through the night and to sleep during the day can develop chronic sleep deprivation and a complete desynchronization of the systems of their bodies, leading to allostatic load.
In fact, it may be harmful to take it at varying times, because it can promote desynchronization of your inner clock.
In passive mode there can be a desynchronization between computers due to computer desynchronization or network lags.
A great deal of study has shown that jet lag is primarily a disorder caused by desynchronization of basic biological cycles within the body and that it causes physical stress as well.
Jet-lag is not desynchronization between the clock and the environment, it is internal desynchronization between all the cellular clocks in our bodies.
Peripheral nociceptive stimulation in anesthetized rats produced an immediate electroencephalogram (EEG) desynchronization resembling the cortical arousal (low-amplitude, fast-wave activity), while the membrane potential switched into a persistent depolarization state.
Animals studies, the researchers note, show that "internal desynchronization" from repeated shifts in the day / night cycle cause premature death.
In addition, we did not observe desynchronization of molecular rhythms among the sLNv as might be expected if communication were disrupted.
It is caused by the desynchronization between the body's internal clock, which resides in the hypothalamus of the brain, and the new light / dark cycle at the destination.
