The interest in the systematic study of the circadian typology (CT) is relatively recent and has developed rapidly in the two last decades. All the existing data suggest that this individual difference affects our biological and psychological functioning, not only in health, but also in disease. In the present study, we review the current literature concerning the psychometric properties and validity of CT measures as well as individual, environmental and genetic factors that influence the CT… Expand

Reviewing the Psychometric Properties of Contemporary Circadian Typology Measures
TLDR
Good-quality subjective and objective data suggest adequate construct validity for each of the CT instruments, but a major limitation of this literature is studies that assess the predictive validity of these instruments. Expand
Circadian typology is related to resilience and optimism in healthy adults
TLDR
The results suggest that evening-type subjects could display less capacity to face adversity and adapt positively, as well as less expectance of the occurrence of positive events compared to neither and morning-type individuals. Expand
The relationship between circadian typology and lifetime experiences of hypomanic symptoms
TLDR
It was showed that circadian and seasonal characteristics related to circadian typology are associated with lifetime hypomanic symptoms and further investigation is needed to determine the eveningness trait, as it could be a trait marker of bipolar spectrum disorder. Expand
Depression and circadian typology.
TLDR
This study supports the association between depression and some alterations in circadian rhythms of behavior and sleep, and suggests a decreased cellular resilience associated with lower resistance to stressful events. Expand
[Chronotype and depression in adolescents – a review].
TLDR
A bidirectional relationship is proposed: on the one hand, due to reduced social and physical activity, depressed patients get less daylight which causes their chronotype to delay, and on the other hand, a discrepancy between internal time and external time can cause problems. Expand
Measures of circadian preference in childhood and adolescence: A review
TLDR
The present state of the art would suggest the use of the MEQ-CA to assess circadian preference in children and adolescents. Expand
Chronobiology of Mood Disorders
TLDR
The structural and functional anatomy, as well as the genetic, of the circadian clock, i.e., the suprachiasmatic nucleus are described, and recent findings on the neurobiology and neuroimaging of the sleep-wake cycle are reviewed. Expand
The association of circadian typology with cognition and smoking status: a cross-sectional Egyptian study
IntroductionCircadian rhythmic expression differs among individuals. These differences are often labeled as morningness–eveningness or chronotype. Three main phenotypic variants of human chronotypeExpand
The Emerging Circadian Phenotype of Borderline Personality Disorder: Mechanisms, Opportunities and Future Directions
TLDR
It is believed that better characterisation of the circadian phenotype in BPD will lead to a directed biological target for treatment in a condition where there is a regrettable paucity of accessible therapies. Expand
Chronotype and Psychiatric Disorders
TLDR
An overview of the current evidence available on the relationship between chronotype and psychiatric disorders is provided, finding eveningness is associated with depression—including seasonal affective disorder (SAD)—and substance dependence, while support for a relation with anxiety disorders and psychosis is lacking.

Depression Scores Associate With Chronotype and Social Jetlag in a Rural Population
TLDR
The results indicate that misalignment of circadian and social time may be a risk factor for developing depression, especially in 31- to 40-yr-olds, and these relationships should be further investigated in longitudinal studies to reveal if reduction of social jetlag should be part of prevention strategies.

TLDR
The clinical and physiological evidence which suggests that exercise intervention may facilitate effective treatment for SAD is assessed and particular emphasis is given to circadian mechanisms that have been hypothesised to explain mood-enhancing affects of physical exercise. Expand

TLDR
The findings support the phase-shift hypothesis for SAD, as well as suggest a way to assess the circadian component of other psychiatric, sleep, and chronobiologic disorders. Expand
