Circadian Rhythms

Recent and buiding evidence has shown how we are all running on timed patterns of rising and falling neurochemicals. Our hormones, our neurotransmitters, our insulin sensitivity are likely following a set rhythm. From there you can imagine how our levels of fatigue and motivation and anxiety, to name a few parameters, are interacting in a highly integrated way. I was amazed to see recent evidence of why we have that 2-3pm slump of concentration. It seems a part of our brain is basically running low on dopaminergic stimulation. As an ADHD psychiatrist, it’s relevant to the timing of medication. Looking at things from a distance, you see a stunning array of criss-crossing lines. Now we back to one of the central motifs of my art for many years : the Lattice. It’s a motif of imagery that captures so much of the aesthetic side of our understanding of the sciences.
