For anyone who’s suffered from lousy sleep cycles, a new study out of Vanderbilt University may contain some good news. A team of researchers have, for the first time, determined that the body’s sleep patterns can be manipulated and its internal clock regulated, on a neurological level. By doing so, the researchers believe they can trick the body into avoiding things like jet lag and even seasonal affective disorder.
