Abstract : Circadian rhythms and especially light/dark cycle have been studied using paraclinical (EEG, MSLT actimetry) and biochemical (melatonin level) methods and neuropsychological tests which evaluate sleep disorders effects. These investigations allow to point out significant changes in sleep as soon as 35 years old. The purpose of this paper is to sum up current knowledge of age influence on sleep and therapeutic ways of good sleep quality recovery or wakefulness preservation in military operational condition.
