The circadian clock regulates various aspects of physiology, homeostasis and disease in mammals, including mood and behavior. Recent work shows that in addition to the internal, central clock controlled by light and the CNS, there is a peripheral clock that is regulated by metabolic cues. The clock is known to be regulated by clock proteins (Bmal, Per, Clock), which in turn are regulated by nuclear receptors such as Rev-Erb. This session will explore some of the latest findings on the link between nutrition and the clock, potential drugs that target Rev-Erb, and the impact on mood and behavior.
