Thinking outside the box: Performance in morning and evening types

In our series “Thinking outside the box” you will find articles about the world of neuroscience, bioinformatics, memory research and other exciting research fields that are not directly related to the SFB 1280.

The RUB news portal reports:

Some people are more efficient in the morning, others in the evening. This is also reflected in brain activity.

Scientists from the Leibniz Institute for Work Research at the Technical University of Dortmund (IfADo) and the International Graduate School of Neuroscience at the RUB are researching the connection between chronotype and the physiological processes of the human brain. The latest findings were published in Nature Communications on 3 August 2021. The result: Chronotype influences human brain functions from basic physiological mechanisms to higher cognitive functions, such as perception, learning, remembering and thinking.
