Abstract : Numerous psychological and physiological assessments were made on adult male, human subjects five times a day at four-hour intervals beginning at 0700 hours. Except for these periods of assessment (approx. 30 minutes duration) no other change was imposed upon their accustomed daily routine of activity nor upon their habits of sleep. Circadian periodicity was found to be clearly manifested by physiological functions; however, little or no corresponding periodicity was demonstrated by the psychological functions assessed.
