1. What are the main differences between the recuperation and circadian theories?Note:
Recuperation, in common usage, refers to a period of recovery. [ This has many uses, from medicine, in which sense it refers to the process by which medical patients recover from disease, injury, or mental illness, or finance, where it refers to the financial recovery of an individual or company.
A circadian rhythm is a roughly-24-hour cycle in the biochemical, physiological or behavioural processes of living beings, including plants, animals, fungi and cyanobacteria. The term "circadian", coined by Franz Halberg, comes from the Latin circa, "around," and diem or dies, "day", meaning literally "approximately one day." The formal study of biological temporal rhythms such as daily, tidal, weekly, seasonal, and annual rhythms, is called chronobiology. ] Auto answered|Score 1|hugyaw|Points 197|Note:

Recuperation theory, states that the bodies homeostasis stage is thrown out of whack when we are awake. Therefore we sleep to restore energy, (even though this is not proven) Or we sleep to restore homeostasis. [ Circadian theory suggests that we sleep, because of harm in the dark. We as humans do not require sleep physiologically, but sleep to fend off predators or harm. Circadian theory suggests that nothing will happen to the body if we do not sleep, but suggests its a good idea to reserve energy and to keep from harming ourselves in the dark.
