"Ned Connor recorded aspects of his behavior for over four years. Ned kept a small sheet of paper and a wrist stopwatch with him at all times and recorded the time spent at each major activity, such as when he slept, when he was in the laboratory, when he was socializing and with whom, time spent working, relaxing and exercising, what foods he ate and when, how many sentences he wrote. In one study, Ned constructed cumulative records of numebr of sentences written each day over the course of 2 1/2 years, and identified scallops, with sentences increasing as each school term drew to a close; living with another person caused a decrease in writing rate; writing in a single isolated room increased rate; and sleeping during the day and working at night also resulted in a marked increase in rate. Ned also analyzed his sleep cycle and found that over more than two of the four years analyzed, he maintained a greater than 24-hour sleep-wake cycle. Although this effect is commonly found when people are isolated in environments containing no obvious time cues, e.g., while living deep in a cave, the effect is noteworthy for a sighted individual in an everyday environment."back
