Abstract : The importance of the paper lies in its demonstration that a varied and patterned sensory environment is essential to the maintenance of normal human behaviour. If a person is required to live for many days in a monotonous, non-changing sensory and perceptual environment, his physiological and phychological processes may operate in extraordinary ways. The study of man under extreme conditions can contribute much to our understanding of the ordinary functioning of the organism. (Author)
