The role of circadian rhythmicity

Disruption of sleep and circadian rhythmicity have been linked with an increased susceptibility to mood disorders and, in general, with decreased wellbeing outcomes. According to an article in the July 25, 2018 issue of JAMA Psychiatry, in which the neural mechanisms underlying insomnia were identified for the first time, poor sleep quality and depressive symptoms are associated with functional connectivity between the areas of the brain associated with short-term memory (dorsolateral prefrontal cortex), self (precuneus) and negative emotions (lateral orbitofrontal cortex). This causes the sufferers to dwell on bad thoughts, leading to a poor quality of sleep.
