SynOpus stands for the 'synchronized opus of behavior and experience of people'. In practice, SynOpus is dedicated to a
health-promoting synchronization of work, leisure and sleep. In lectures and consultations for companies, schools and individuals, SynOpus conveys scientific knowledge of
chronobiology and sleep research. Implementations take place together in dialogue.
What is chronobiology and why does it play a central role in our lives?
Chronobiology is the science of the biology of time (gr. chronos). The temporal structures of human biology are coordinated by the circadian system. The circadian system - the internal clock - is involved in the regulation of the entire physiology, from gene expression to behavior. An undisturbed synchronization with the environment is of fundamental importance for a functioning circadian system. If this process of biological synchronization with the environment is disturbed, it can have negative consequences for health, well-being and performance. Disruptive factors are, for example, shift work, night work, time zone shifted work, as well as an early start to school in the morning or unfavorable treatment times in medicine. Furthermore, the consequences are not limited to the individual, because safety-related deficits in attention performance affect more than just one person and the burdens on insurance carriers due to increased use of medical services affect us all. Dealing with the origins of health and safety-related consequences from living against the internal clock is a challenge for society as a whole. SynOpus takes on these challenges.
