Cure for jet lag to be reality soonJet lag can be a problem for travelers who are crossing several time zones. Soon, it won’t be. Researchers have identified how a fundamental biological process called protein synthesis is controlled within the body's circadian clock — the internal mechanism that controls one's daily rhythms. According to them, by removing this protein the brain clock function was surprisingly improved.

They believe that the research can pave way for treatments of disorders triggered by circadian clock dysfunction, including jet lag, shift work disorders, and chronic conditions like depression and Parkinson's disease.

Study co-author Dr. Shimon Amir, professor in Concordia University's Department of Psychology, said that to understand and treat the causes and symptoms of circadian abnormalities, we have to take a closer look at the fundamental biological mechanisms that control our internal clocks.

The research findings appeared in the journal Neuron.
