Abstract
Seven blind subjects without light perception were studied in order to evaluate the control of neuro-endocrine temporal events. Cortisol (50237) was found to be secreted episodically in all blind subjects in patterns similar to those previously reported in normal subjects: six of seven subjects had sleep related release of growth- hormone (9002726).
