Part of the Forschungsberichte Des Landes Nordrhein-Westfalen book series (FOLANW)


The question of the circadian rhythm of the organism, along with a number of social problems, occupies a central place in the study of shift-work. Although thoroughly investigated, this problem has re-arisen because of the changed character of work in modern conditions, and the influence on the circadian rhythm of the arousal and the functional state of the organism. The use of new techniques also allows new possibilities to be investigated.
