Studies were carried out on a group of six young (ages 23-30) and six older (ages 53-70) normal men who lived under conditions of temporal, but not social isolation, from three to eight weeks. During entrained and non-entrained (free-running) conditions, comparative measurements were made of sleep-wake cycles, sleep stages and rectal temperature rhythms for these two age groups. Results demonstrated a reduction in the period and amplitude of the body temperature rhythms during free-running in… Expand
