Abstract

An experiment was conducted to assess sleep and circadian regulation in an astronaut. Sleep was recorded polygraphically on tape as was body temperature. Daytime alertness was subjectively rated by a mood questionnaire. For a comparison, the same parameters were measured during a baseline period preceeding the flight. The circadian rhythmsof body temperature and alertness were found to be delayed in space compared to baseline. This could mark a phase shift or the transitionto a circadian state of free-run. Sleep was shorter and more distur- bed. The structure of sleep was significantly altered. In space REM- latency was shorter, there was less REM sleep in the second non REM/ REM cycle, and slow wave sleep was redistributed from the first to the second cycle.
