Abstract

Chronobiology, including chronophysiology, is now a hot area of multidisciplinary research. The paper outlines the contribution of I. P. Pavlov's ideas concerning time coding and time structures; conditioning is considered as a full account of how rhythms come about. Are mentioned some principals and advances of chronobiology and chronobiometry, with special emphasis on the chronophysiology of digestion. Finally is reminded the motto of quantitative chronobiology "measure what is measurable in time, hence meaningfully, and render equally significantly measurable what as yet is not."
