Resumen This report discusses biological rhythms: what they are, how they are controlled by the brain, and the role they play in regulating the physiological and cognitive functions. Its focus is on the examination of the effects of non-standard work hours on biological rhythms and how these effects can interact with other factors to affect the health, performance and safety of workers. The United States federal regulatory framework related to work hours and the current status of biological rhythm and shift work research are also described. Comparative data on shift work from different countries is also provided. Glossary of terms.
