If your body’s clock main goal is to optimize energy intake survival, then what happens when food is available at the wrong time?
For rodents, if food is available only during the daytime (when they are supposed to be asleep and fasting), what happens? Does their body ignore the food? This would be a detrimental signal to say the least because if the choose to ignore the food cue they would die. IN fact, if mice learn that food is only available during the day time, they start waking up an hour before food arrives to search for food. But after eating their food, they go back to sleep (as they usually do during the day), and they stroll around during night. In other words, their body clock, controlling the daily sleep-wake cycle, continues to work fine, except for a brief period during the day when they wake up to eat food.
