Abstract

This study explored the relation of circadian characteristics of mood to those of blood pressure and heart rate in a longitudinal record kept by a 24-year-old, clinically healthy man. Circadian rhythm characteristics, assessed for consecutive daily spans, were analysed by Pearson's product-moment correlation. A circadian rhythm was demonstrated for all variables. The circadian amplitude of negative mood was found to correlate positively with the MESOR of systolic and diastolic blood pressure.
