What is it about?
The human body anticipates earth's light-dark cycle through a network of internal clocks (the circadian system). Disturbances of this fundamental biological network are, not surprisingly, associated with health problems. This paper provides the most extensive scholarly review to date of circadian disturbances in bipolar disorder.

Why is it important?
This is the first scholarly review to critically consider the quality and coherence of findings in the literature as a whole. We conclude that, while there is a range of data pointing to circadian involvement in bipolar disorder, there has been a lack of replication across studies, and almost no consideration of the relationship between circadian findings at different levels of analysis.
