Abstract : The Institute's activities have been concerned with evaluating the influence of various stressors, physiological and psychological, on man's ability to adapt. Two recent projects reflect these research activities. Utilizing exercise as a stressor, we have conducted studies which were designed to (a) determine the capability of women to perform sustained submaximal work and (b) to determine the effects of prior exercise on sleep patterns as exemplified by changes in types of sleep and associated cardiovascular parameters.
