Studying Ultradian rhythms in voles

Studying Ultradian rhythms in voles

Dr Daan van der Veen is a lecturer in sleep and chronobiology at Surrey University. He has worked with voles (Microtus arvalis) because these animals naturally live in a fast, ultradian rhythm. They feed and socialise for a few hours and then sleep for an hour or so before repeating this cycle three or four times a day. The animals are kept in deep litter so they can burrow, and provided with an exercise wheel in each cage to allow them to use up their restless energy. In chronobiology, an ultradian rhythm is a recurrent period or cycle repeated throughout a 24-hour day. In contrast, circadian rhythms complete one cycle daily, while infradian rhythms such as the human menstrual cycle have periods longer than a day. The Oxford English Dictionary’s definition of Ultradian specifies that it refers to cycles with a period shorter than a day but longer than an hour. The descriptive term ultradian is used in sleep research in reference to the 90–120 minute cycling of the sleep stages during human sleep.

Microscopic Fungi (Yeast) Year 8 Lesson PowerPoint (KS3 8Db) Unicellular Organisms topic

Microscopic Fungi (Yeast) Year 8 Lesson PowerPoint (KS3 8Db) Unicellular Organisms topic

Full lesson PowerPoint (with practical learning activities) sufficient to teach a broad range of abilities about physiological processes in yeast and their uses. The lesson is in keeping with the current KS3 UK National Curriculum, is easily accessible for students and simple to follow for teachers. Part of this lesson directs students to access the Year 8 Exploring Science textbook; however, it can be equally well performed using any resource that outlines how fermentation occurs in yeast. You will also need to download the free resources “8Db Microscopic Fungi”, “8Db Budding Yeast” and/or “8Db Yeast Populations” from my TES shop.
