The chronobiology, etiology and pathophysiology of obesity
The effect of CD on human health is an emerging issue. Many records link CD with diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular, cognitive impairment and obesity, all of them conducive to premature aging.Expand

Circadian rhythm of wrist temperature in normal-living subjects: A candidate of new index of the circadian system
Most circadian rhythms are under the control of a major pacemaker located in the hypothalamic suprachiasmatic nucleus. Some of these rhythms, called marker rhythms, serve to characterize the timingExpand

Influence of light intensity, spectrum and orientation on sea bass plasma and ocular melatonin
Melatonin is involved in the transduction of light information and the photoperiodic control of many important physiological functions in fish. Although artificial photoperiods have been used toExpand

Melatonin rhythms in European sea bass plasma and eye: influence of seasonal photoperiod and water temperature
The transduction of seasonal information from the environment (i.e., photoperiod and water temperature) into melatonin rhythms was studied in sea bass. Plasma and ocular melatoninExpand

Light-dark and food restriction cycles in sea bass: Effect of conflicting zeitgebers on demand-feeding rhythms
Sea bass, a fish species characterized by its dualistic feeding pattern, was investigated to study the synchronizing effect of light and food on the demand-feeding rhythm. Nocturnal and diurnal seaExpand

Effect of three feeding strategies (automatic, ad libitum demand-feeding and time-restricted demand-feeding) on feeding rhythms and growth in European sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax L.)
Abstract We studied the effect of automatic-feeding (A), ad libitum demand-feeding (D) and time-restricted demand-feeding (RD) on the feeding rhythm and growth performance of European sea bassExpand

Circadian Rhythms of Feeding Activity in Sea Bass, Dicentrarchus labrax L.: Dual Phasing Capacity of Diel Demand-Feeding Pattern
The nocturnal versus diurnal feeding patterns of sea bass under controlled experimental conditions were studied in order to investigate the existence of such a dualistic feeding behavior. The animalsExpand

CLOCK gene is implicated in weight reduction in obese patients participating in a dietary programme based on the Mediterranean diet
Introduction:The success of obesity therapy is dependent on the genetic background of the patient. Circadian Locomotor Output Cycles Kaput (CLOCK), one of the transcription factors from the positiveExpand

Feeding entrainment of locomotor activity rhythms in the goldfish is mediated by a feeding-entrainable circadian oscillator
Abstract Periodic food availability can act as a potent zeitgeber capable of synchronizing many biological rhythms in fishes, including locomotor activity rhythms. In the present paper weExpand
