GSU neuroscientist receives $1.3 million grant to study circadian rhythm
Congratulations to H. Elliott Albers, Regents’ Professor of Neuroscience and Director of the Center for Behavioral Neuroscience on being the recipient of a National Institutes of Health $1.3 million grant. The four-year grant is to study circadian rhythm which is the body’s internal clock and how it follows a 24 hour cycle. This research will look at circadian rhythm in order to obtain a better in understanding of sleep and other disorders that affect human health.
