The Katlab studies the physiological mechanisms of mammalian and human timing behaviour from infancy to adulthood, and the way in which biological clocks and the endocrine systems exploit daylight and other environmental cues to adjust to daily, seasonal and annual rhythms. Our lab spans across faculties and forms a core expertise in Eco-Chronobiology and Sleep Research at the Departments of Molecular Biology and Radiation Sciences.

Our approach is a systems approach one, and includes an unique glass architecture for daylight research, the Photon Space. We use a number of tools from indoor climate, daylight and electrical light to actigraphy, EEG, ESM, microdialysis, eye tracking and our studies involve children and adults.

You can find a variety of information on our Nordic Daylight Research Programme website: http://www.katlab.org/
