This has proved to be instrumental in figuring out what happens when the circadian rhythms don't work properly, and also in figuring out about bigger medical complications and disorders as such insomnia, depression, and even heart disease.
Three American scientists received the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for their research on the work of internal biological clocks in organisms. Actually, Circadian rhythms adapt the workings of the body according to different phases of the day, thus influencing sleep, behavior, hormone levels, metabolism and body temperature.
And it all started with fruit flies.
They showed that mutations in an unknown gene, which they named "period", disrupted the internal clock of flies - but little was known about how this actually worked in practise.

This gene was undiscovered until the 1970s when a researchers determined its existence and named it the Period gene. "He represents the best of our science community, which combines original, rigorous research with the engagement of undergraduate and graduate students, doctoral candidates and postdocs, all interacting in what is sometimes a magical collaboration". Researchers have learned that body clocks are important to health in a variety of ways.
