Impact of night shift work on central and peripheral clocks in police officers


Abstract

Summary:

This paper studies the impact of night shift work on the central and peripheral clocks in police officers, finding that the peripheral clocks were disrupted after 7 consecutive night shifts, while the central clock markers showed some degree of adaptation.

  • Alertness and performance: The paper discusses the consequences of shift work on attention and vigilance, which are key aspects of alertness and performance.
  • Cognitive function and memory: The paper indirectly discusses cognitive function and memory by studying the impact of shift work on circadian rhythms, which are known to affect cognitive function and memory.
  • Hormone regulation: The paper studies the regulation of hormones such as cortisol and melatonin, which are key markers of the central clock.
  • Lighting Design Considerations: The paper discusses the impact of light intensity exposure on the central and peripheral clocks of police officers working night shifts.
  • Well-being: The paper indirectly discusses well-being by studying the impact of shift work on circadian rhythms, which are known to affect overall health and well-being.
