Aims of the Study
The main objective of this project is to develop new methods to monitor the status of your biological clock in ambulatory operations. The biological clock (called circadian clock) controls your daily rhythms of body temperature, hormone and urine production, vigilance, performance, mood, time perception, and sleep quality. The results of this study will help us better understand the relation between the different physiological rhythms measured.

Description of the Study
The study involves preliminary screening tests (heart recording, physical, psychological assessment, urine and blood samples for biochemical analysis). There is a 3-day experimental session to be completed in the lab, during which time participants will perform psychological tests. Biological samples will be taken (saliva, urine), and participants will undergo medical monitoring. Financial compensation will be provided.
