It is a process that displays an endogenous, entrainable oscillation of about 24 hours. Circadian Rhythms are often referred to as the "body clock". A growing body of research is examining the adverse health effects a disrupted circadian rhythm can have, like increasing the chances of cardiovascualr events, obesity, and a correlation with neurological problems like depression and bipolar disorder. There are clear patterns of brain wave activity, hormone production, cell regeneration and other biological activities linked to this daily cycle.
