    Dr Rajshekher‘s insight:

    Are you a morning lark or a night owl? New research is beginning to show that night-owls are more prone to depression and white matter lesions (something euphemistically labelled as ‘decreased white matter integrity’); but they are also identified as people who are more productive, with greater analytical ability, have more stamina throughout the day, have greater reasoning abilities, and so on. I don’t know: with recent demands of business and work in my life, I have changed from a morning lark to a night lark/owl! Do you want to know what role genetics plays in this? Do you want to know how to override the infulence of genetics on our sleep pattern and on our circadian rhythms? Then this article is definitely for you!!
