The circadian clock plays a significant role in determining the timing and quality of sleep, and dysfunction of the circadian clock is often present in patients with a range of psychiatric conditions. As the clock relies on environmental light to remain synchronized with the environment, altered light responses can lead to disturbed circadian rhythms. This webinar focuses on understanding how individual differences in sensitivity to light may contribute to vulnerability for sleep and mood disorders, and how we may use this information to inform personalised treatment choices.
Dr Elise McGlashan is a Research Fellow working in the Sleep and Circadian Medicine Laboratory at the Turner Institute for Brain and Mental Health, Monash University. She completed her PhD at Monash in 2019, which examined the role of sensitivity of the circadian clock to light in the context of depressive disorders.
