Core body temperature is predominantly modulated by endogenous and exogenous components. In the present study we tested whether these two components can be reliably assessed in a protocol which lasts for only 120 h. In this so-called forced desynchrony protocol, 12 healthy male subjects (age 23.7 +/- 1.4 y) were subjected one by one to an artificial light/dark cycle of 20 h (10 lux vs. darkness). Core body temperature was measured continuously. The temperature data were analysed by an iterative… CONTINUE READING
