Abstract:

This study was undertaken to investigate possible practice effects and diurnal fluctuations in human motor and cognitive performances under baseline illumination conditions 400 lux. Six subjects were tested individually in order to partial out peer social interaction effects. The testing took place over a wide range of testing time epochs. Specifically, subjects were tested from 0800 to 1200 hours, 1400 to 1800 hours and 2000 to 0000 hours in a counter-balanced repeated measures design.
