Abstract
Studies in man indicate that at least 4 hypothalamic-pituitary hormonal systems, ACTH (9002602) cortisol (50237), growth-hormone (9002726), prolactin (9002624) and the gonadotropins (9002679), have temporal patterns of secretion that are closely linked to the 24- hour sleep-waking activity in man. No simple principle or mechanism can explain these patterns, but rather each system has its own temporal organization and response to manipulations of the sleep- waking cycle.
