Abstract : The paper examines past research concerning biological rhythms and human performance and suggests methods for future research concerning biological rhythms and their effects on performance of a maintenance type task. Many studies have been done concerning biological rhythms but relatively little research has been directed toward the effects of biological rhythms on performance of an actual motor task. While no substantial conclusions can be drawn from this paper, it does point out that future research is desirable and suggestions are offered for directing future research. (Author)
