The term biological clock has been given to the phenomenon displayed by organisms, both plants and animals, that pace their functions in a cyclic fashion that is related in some way to environmental stimuli. This report includes 1 design and construction of an experimental facility to compare specific data from the elec tronic model with animals subjected to the same environmental conditions simulated on the model, 2 biological experimentation and statistical analysis of the biological results to test valid ity of the biological clock and suggest improve ments for the mathematical and electronic model, 3 cellular analysis of some functional aspects of the ct generation in order to initiate establishment of a one to one correspondence with the model of the biological clock, 4 investiga tion of adaptive and learning system capabilities of the biological clock, and 5 development of a better model for the biological clock and possible engineering system implications.
