Abstract: Circadian rhythm is a 24-hour internal body clock that influences various behavioral, mental and physical state. Any disruption in this cycle is known to have impact on overall physiology and psychology of the body. Disruption in circadian cycle alters the functioning of the brain and affects mental intelligence especially in the youth. Using a pre-prepared questionnaire based on 5 parameters - Thinking capacity, Reasoning, Retention, Processing speed and Problem-solving, the responses were collected for further analysis. The students were categorized into 2 groups- Group A (Students with disrupted circadian cycle i.e. those who use phone in the night) and Group B (Students with undisrupted circadian cycle i.e. those who have no screen time in night). The group difference was statistically significant. The mean intelligence score of group B students was comparatively more than group A student. Group B students were more active than group A student. We can thus say that those with disturbed circadian cycle have a low mental intelligence. One of the factors could be that of stress due to lack of sleep. Due to excessive screen time, the sleeping hours are reduced due to which the brain processing speed may be reduced. We can thus conclude that those with a disturbed circadian cycle have low mental intelligence. This disruption results in low quality of brain functioning and affects cognitive abilities, behaviour and judgements. A good and maintained sleep-wake cycle helps the brain to function to its optimum level and thus IQ level is maintained. Their busy lifestyle and excessive screen time are cons to their body. A balanced sleep-wake cycle will help the student to maintain a distressed life.
Keywords: circadian rhythm/cycle, Internal body clock, sleep cycle, cognition, youth.
