To eat or not to eat?: From animal models to shift workers

Wednesday 17 October, 0900-1620

The session would be relevant to the wider ASA and ASTA audience - Sleep and respiratory physicians and technicians, physiologists, circadian biologists, endocrinologists, and neuroscientists. Thus, it would be of interest to the both the clinical and experimental communities of the associations. Given the relevance of sleep loss/disruption and health outcomes to both the clinical and experimental community, it is difficult to imagine any group who would not be interested in this session.

Learning objectives include:

  1. New findings on the importance of appropriately timed meals for health and performance 
  2. New data on the mechanisms that signal circadian misalignment to peripheral tissues
  3. New insights about how to improve metabolism without calorie restriction
  4. New results from studies in shift workers examining actual eating patterns
  5. Important considerations for the implementation of eating and sleep guidelines in the workplace
