This paper reviews the literature on the circadian rhythm of body temperature (CRT). The review starts with a brief discussion of methodological procedures followed by the description of known patterns of oscillation in body temperature, including ultradian and infradian rhythms. Special sections are devoted to issues of species differences, development and aging, and the relationships between the CRT and the circadian rhythm of locomotor activity, between the CRT and the thermoregulatory…

How is the circadian rhythm of core body temperature regulated?

TLDR
It is shown that heat production undergoes a circadian rhythm which is phase advanced by 1.2h with respect to the circadian rhythm of heat loss, i.e. when heat production surpassesHeat loss, CBT increases – transport of heat needs time.
Circadian rhythmicity of body temperature and metabolism
TLDR
The circadian system modulates metabolic heat production to generate the body temperature rhythm, which challenges homeothermy but does not abolish it, meaning that circadian rhythmicity and metabolism are intertwined in the cell.
Energy intake and the circadian rhythm of core body temperature in sheep
TLDR
The data indicate that modulation of the circadian rhythm of body temperature, characterized by inactive‐phase hypothermia, occurs when energy intake is reduced, which may be an adaptation to energy imbalance in large mammals.
The circadian rhythm of body core temperature (CRT) is normal in patient with congenital generalized anhidrosis
TLDR
This case represents an “experiment of nature”demonstrating that the physiological nocturnal fall of BcT is independent of sweating.
Exercise as a synchroniser of human circadian rhythms: an update and discussion of the methodological problems
TLDR
It is unclear at present whether exercise can help mitigate the problems associated with transmeridian travel and shift-work, and the lack of agreement with the phase-shifting effects of bright light suggests that exercise is not exerting its effects via photic entrainment pathways.
Breathing around the clock: an overview of the circadian pattern of respiration

TLDR
A daily time-window exists in which the respiratory system is less capable of responding to challenges, a factor which may contribute to the findings that some cardio-respiratory symptoms and diseases peak at particular times of the day.
Effect of a short photoperiod on circadian rhythms of body temperature and motor activity in old rats
TLDR
The data show that the circadian rhythm of motor activity, but not of body temperature, responds age dependently to a photoperiod reduction.
Simulated body temperature rhythms reveal the phase-shifting behavior and plasticity of mammalian circadian oscillators.
TLDR
Using precise temperature devices in conjunction with real-time monitoring of the bioluminescence produced by circadian luciferase reporter genes, it was shown that simulated body temperature cycles of mice and even humans, with daily temperature differences of only 3°C and 1°C, respectively, could gradually synchronize circadian gene expression in cultured fibroblasts.
Assessing Homeostasis Through Circadian Patterns
TLDR
This article examines data collected every 30 minutes in mice, assumes there are underlying circadian patterns, and extends the approach presented in Brumback and Rice (1998) in order to obtain estimates in the presence of correlated data, and assess homeostasis using these estimates and their statistical properties.

It is suggested that the adult type of circadian rhythm of human body temperature is established during the first year of life with regard to phase but not to amplitude.

TLDR
The hypothalamic temperature was regulated over a narrower range than the colonic temperature and was higher than Colonic temperature at all TaS except the warmest, and the mean nighttime temperatures were influenced more by Ta than were the mean daytime temperatures.
Circadian rhythm of temperature in man. Comparative study with two experiment protocols.
TLDR
A major role is given to the circulatory phenomena to explain the Tre rhythm, which is a rhythm of rectal temperature of a low amplitude, non sinusoidal, with a day-time plateau and a night-time minimum.
Masking of the Circadian Rhythms of Heart Rate and Core Temperature by the Rest-Activity Cycle in Man
TLDR
The data indicate that normal wake-time activities produce major masking effects on the circadian heart rate rhythm and somewhat smaller effects onThe temperature rhythm, which may be partially attributable to core temperature's being more rigorously conserved than heart rate, at least during moderate exercise.
