Interest to investigate daily fluctuations in cognitive tasks, so-called "school-rhythms", lies in exploring the most favourable time-of-day for learning considering the analysis of variations in performance taking into account individual differences.

Existing evidence suggests an association between mood, time-of-day and morningness-eveningness (M-E). Since few studies have been carried out among adolescents, in this study daily mood fluctuations were analyzed in the naturalistic school context during 2 d in order to test how chronotype and time-of-day are related to mood during the school schedule(More)
