  1. pmc Day/night variability in blood pressure: influence of posture and physical activity
    Christopher J Morris
    Medical Chronobiology Program, Division of Sleep Medicine, Brigham and Women s Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts, USA
    Am J Hypertens 26:822-8. 2013
    ..Contributions of changes in posture and physical activity to the 24-hour day/night rhythm in BP are not well understood. We hypothesized that postural changes and physical activity contribute substantially to the day/night rhythm in BP...
  2. pmc The impact of the circadian timing system on cardiovascular and metabolic function
    Christopher J Morris
    Division of Sleep Medicine, Brigham and Women s Hospital, Boston, MA, USA
    Prog Brain Res 199:337-58. 2012
    ..This suggests that misalignment between the behavioral cycle and the circadian timing system in shift workers contributes to that population's increased risk for cardiometabolic disease...
  3. pmc Paradoxical post-exercise responses of acylated ghrelin and leptin during a simulated night shift
    Christopher J Morris
    Research Institute for Sport and Exercise Sciences, Liverpool John Moores University, Liverpool, United Kingdom
    Chronobiol Int 27:590-605. 2010
    ..These findings differ from the known effects of exercise on acylated ghrelin and leptin during the day, and therefore have implications for energy balance during night work...
  4. pmc Circadian system, sleep and endocrinology
    Christopher J Morris
    Division of Sleep Medicine, Brigham and Women s Hospital, Boston, MA, United States
    Mol Cell Endocrinol 349:91-104. 2012
    ..Further research is needed to determine the underlying mechanisms that cause the negative effects induced by circadian misalignment. Such research could aid the development of novel countermeasures for circadian misalignment...
  5. pmc The internal circadian clock increases hunger and appetite in the evening independent of food intake and other behaviors
    Frank A J L Scheer
    Medical Chronobiology Program, Division of Sleep Medicine, Department of Medicine, Brigham and Women s Hospital, Boston, MA, USA
    Obesity (Silver Spring) 21:421-3. 2013
    ..We assessed whether this paradox could be explained by an endogenous circadian influence on appetite with a morning trough, while controlling for sleep/wake and fasting/feeding effects...
  6. pmc Repeated melatonin supplementation improves sleep in hypertensive patients treated with beta-blockers: a randomized controlled trial
    Frank A J L Scheer
    Medical Chronobiology Program, Division of Sleep Medicine, Department of Medicine, Brigham and Women s Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts, USA
    Sleep 35:1395-402. 2012
    ..Therefore, we tested whether nightly melatonin supplementation improves sleep in hypertensive patients treated with beta-blockers...
