Café Scientifique Manchester
Cafe Scientifique is a place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology. Meetings take place in cafes, bars, restaurants and even theatres, but always outside a traditional academic context.
Cafe Scientifique is a forum for debating science issues, not a shop window for science. We are committed to promoting public engagement with science and to making science accountable.
When: 6pm on the last Thursday of every month
Where: Grafton Arms, 27 Grafton Street, M13 9WU

|Title||How do body clocks time physiology and behaviour?|
|Speaker||Professor Andrew Loudon|
We now know that all cells and tissues of the body harbour local internal clocks. How are these clocks synchronised with each other and what are they doing? In this talk, I will address what we currently know of how the brain clock regulates timing systems throughout the body to control sleep and wake cycles and hormone rhythms.
