Event details

Some people prefer to wake and go to bed early (‘larks’) whilst others prefer the opposite, choosing later going to bed and waking up times (‘owls’). Professor John Groeger (NTU Psychology) will describe how these preferences for morningness-eveningness shape our waking and sleep lives, how larks and owls differ in terms of their physical and mental health, and the effects of shift-working which disrupts these circadian rhythms.

Those attending will also have the opportunity to ask questions of Professor James Horne, who developed the world's most widely used measures of morningness-eveningness. Prior to the session, we will email you a link to complete an online questionnaire to determine whether you are a 'lark' or an 'owl'.

These sessions are based on whether you think you are a 'lark' or an 'owl'. Come to this morning event if you think you're a 'lark', or book on to the evening session if you consider yourself an 'owl'.
