- Differences in sleep and circadian preference between Eastern and Western German adolescentsChristoph Randler
Department of Biology, Pharmacy and Psychology, Institute of Biology I, University of Leipzig, Leipzig, Germany
Chronobiol Int 25:565-75. 2008..The finding of earlier rise and bed times of the East German pupils is consistent with the hypothesis that sunlight acts as the entrainment for the biological clock of adolescents, as sunrise is earlier in Eastern Germany...

University of Education Heidelberg, Biology, Im Neuenheimer Feld 561 2, D 69120, Heidelberg, Germany
Naturwissenschaften 103:3. 2016..This meta-analytical approach shows that morningness-eveningness changes across the adult lifespan and that older age is related to higher morningness...
- Asymmetries in commitment in an avian communication networkChristoph Randler
Department of Biology, University of Education Heidelberg, Im Neuenheimer Feld 561 2, 69120, Heidelberg, Germany
Naturwissenschaften 100:199-203. 2013..The communication network is asymmetric. Some species invest more than they receive from other species. As mobbing might incur costs, these are unequally distributed across the community...
- Chronotype but not sleep length is related to salivary testosterone in young adult menChristoph Randler
University of Education Heidelberg, Im Neuenheimer Feld 561 2, 69120 Heidelberg, Germany
Psychoneuroendocrinology 37:1740-4. 2012..Sleep duration was uncorrelated with testosterone, suggesting that timing of sleep - rather than sleep length itself - is influenced by testosterone...

University of Education Heidelberg, Department of Natural Sciences, Heidelberg, Germany
J Genet Psychol 172:302-8. 2011..Composite Scale of Morningness scores are related to puberty scores in boys and girls, and when combining data (i.e., higher pubertal development was related to eveningness)...
- Assortative mating in morningness-eveningnessChristoph Randler
University of Education Heidelberg, Germany
Int J Psychol 46:91-6. 2011..Therefore, two extreme chronotypes are unlikely to meet each other because they have the smallest overlap in their preferred active time during the day due to the circadian rhythmicity...
- Foot preferences in wild-living ring-necked parakeets (Psittacula krameri, Psittacidae)Christoph Randler
University of Education Heidelberg, Germany
Laterality 16:201-6. 2011..At the feeding location, 24 individuals were left-footed and 11 were right-footed. These observations suggest a foot preference in the ring-necked parakeet both on the population level and on the individual level...
- Morningness-eveningness, habitual sleep-wake variables and cortisol levelChristoph Randler
University of Education Heidelberg, Im Neuenheimer Feld 561, Heidelberg, Germany
Biol Psychol 85:14-8. 2010..When comparing extreme chronotypes, morning types had higher cortisol levels immediately after awakening than evening types. These results strongly suggest an association between morningness-eveningness and CAR...
- Associations among sleep, chronotype, parental monitoring, and pubertal development among German adolescentsChristoph Randler
University of Education Heidelberg, Im Neuenheimer Feld 561 2 D 69120, Heidelberg, Germany
J Psychol 143:509-20. 2009....
- In sync with the family: children and partners influence the sleep-wake circadian rhythm and social habits of womenCatherine Leonhard
University of Education Heidelberg, Heidelberg, Germany
Chronobiol Int 26:510-25. 2009..This study suggests children have a strong influence on their mother's lifestyle and sleep-wake rhythm, far beyond the first months of life, and that children are a more important social factor than the male partner...
- Morningness-eveningness comparison in adolescents from different countries around the worldChristoph Randler
Department of Biology, Pharmacy, and Psychology, University of Leipzig, Leipzig, Germany
Chronobiol Int 25:1017-28. 2008..Adolescents were found to be more morning oriented both toward the East and North. The results indicate that climate, longitude, and latitude contribute to chronotype...
- Outdoor light at night (LAN) is correlated with eveningness in adolescentsChristian Vollmer
Department of Biology, University of Education Heidelberg, Germany
Chronobiol Int 29:502-8. 2012....
- Further evidence for the influence of photoperiod at birth on chronotype in a sample of German adolescentsChristian Vollmer
Department of Biology, University of Education Heidelberg, Im Neuenheimer Feld 561 2, Heidelberg, Germany
Chronobiol Int 29:1345-51. 2012..Future studies may require larger sample sizes, may need to explore how neonatal light exposure modulates chronotype, and may need to track how puberty and adolescent lifestyle habits mask the photoperiod effect...
- Daytime sleepiness during transition into daylight saving time in adolescents: Are owls higher at risk?Anne Marie Schneider
University of Education, Heidelberg, Germany
Sleep Med 10:1047-50. 2009..Here, we looked at the transition into daylight saving time (DST) in adolescents. As adolescents tend to be evening types, one may expect that they suffer from a transition into DST...
- Evening types among german university students score higher on sense of humor after controlling for big five personality factorsChristoph Randler
Department of Life Sciences, Pharmacy and Psychology, University of Leipzig, Germany
Psychol Rep 103:361-70. 2008..Eveningness was related to sense of Humor scores in women but not in men. Social but not cognitive humor was predicted by eveningness...

- Association between chronotype and diet in adolescents based on food logsDaniel Fleig
University of Education Heidelberg, Im Neuenheimer Feld 561 2, Heidelberg D 69120, Germany
Eat Behav 10:115-8. 2009..Mean breakfast time at the weekend was later in late chronotypes which was a result of later rise times of late chronotypes. The study showed that morning oriented pupils exhibit a healthier and more regular lifestyle...
