In order to document circadian rhythmicity in various psychological functions under the chronobiologically 'pure' condition of temporal isolation, a battery of mood and performance tests were administered about 6 times per day to a heterogeneous group of 18 subjects (ages 19-81, 5 female). Each subject spent about 5 days in temporal isolation, entrained to a routine equivalent to his/her own habitual sleep/wake cycle. Average time of day functions were obtained for the mood and performance… Expand
Diurnal variations in the mood and performance of highly practised young women living under strictly controlled conditions.
TLDR
It was concluded that those variables that exhibited diurnal variation showed trends that did not parallel those in core body temperature, and factor analyses indicated possible relationships between the variables. Expand
Circadian Determinants of Subjective Alertness
Four healthy male subjects each experienced a temporal isolation experiment last ing several months. During part of each experiment (2-5 weeks), the subject's entire imposed daily routine (includingExpand
RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN SLEEP QUALITY AND DIURNAL VARIATIONS IN MOOD IN HEALTHY SUBJECTS
Research to intraday fluctuations of mood in healthy subjects has indicated that diurnal patterns occur in positive mood states such as vigour, happiness and hedonic tone as well as in negative moodExpand
EFFECTS OF ARTIFICIAL DAWN ON SUBJECTIVE RATINGS OF SLEEP INERTIA AND DIM LIGHT MELATONIN ONSET
TLDR
Testing whether the use of an alarm clock with artificial dawn could reduce complaints of sleep inertia in people having difficulties in waking up early revealed that only the presence of the artificial dawn, rather than shift in the dim light melatonin onset or timing of sleep offset, is related to the observed reduction ofSleep inertia complaints.

Circadian temperature rhythm power spectra: is equal sampling necessary?
TLDR
The results suggested that if there is a sufficiently large number of cycles (>14), and if interest is restricted to the “power spectrum’ and/or tau, then equal spacing is probably not required. Expand
Circadian Components in Energy and Tension and Their Relation to Physiological Activation and Performance
TLDR
The association of the two dimensions of subjective activation did not prove to be consistent with the assumptions of Thayer's model, and their 24 h relations with indices of physiological activation and performance efficiency were not found. Expand
Differential 24‐Hour Variation of Alertness and Subjective Tension in Process Controllers: Investigation of the Relationship with Body Temperature and Heart Rate
TLDR
The hypothesis of a close dependence of alertness and temperature, and to a lesser extent for HR, on endogenous mechanisms in this job‐situation is supported. Expand
Investigation of task performance variations according to task requirements and alertness across the 24-h day in shift workers
TLDR
Time of day effects on task performance in shift workers in different tasks, by varying task-specific features, demonstrated time-of-day effects on cognitive processes also involved in many real-job activities, despite the lack of control for a number of exogenous factors. Expand
The role of incidental variables of time in mood assessment
Determining what influences mood is important for theories of emotion and research on subjective well-being. We consider three sets of factors: activities in which people are engaged; individualExpand

TLDR
Brief lavender odor presentation may serve as a nonphotic method for altering mood in young depressed and nondepressed adults particularly during the fall, a time of heightened discriminability. Expand

Independence of the circadian rhythm in alertness from the sleep/wake cycle
TLDR
The results indicate that the circadian rhythm in alertness can become independent of both the sleep/wake cycle and the rhythm in body temperature, and suggest that the sleep /wake cycle exerts less influence on the alertness rhythm than it does on that of temperature. Expand
Multi-oscillatory control of circadian rhythms in human performance
TLDR
Control of working memory performance rhythms by a previously unidentified oscillator with an autonomous period of about 21 h is indicated and this finding forms the basis of current multi-oscillatory models. Expand

Task variables determine which biological clock controls circadian rhythms in human performance
TLDR
The results indicate that a simple manual dexterity task is almost entirely under the control of the temperature rhythm oscillator, whereas a more complex cognitive task demonstrates a periodicity which appears to be influenced by those oscillators controlling temperature and the sleep/wake cycle. Expand
Circadian rhythms in human performance efficiency under free-running conditions.
TLDR
Evidence was obtained to suggest that different tasks are under the control of different circadian oscillators, and the circadian rhythm in verbal reasoning performance tends to run at a shorter circadian period than that in more simple repetitive tasks. Expand

Mathematical model of the human circadian system with two interacting oscillators.
TLDR
A model where temperature and rest-activity are each governed by an oscillator of the van der Pol type, denoted x and y, respectively, finds that the entire pattern sequence can be realistically reproduced by causing only the intrinsic period of the y oscillator to increase while that of x remains stable.
