Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Both circadian and infradian rythms in Affective State (AS) are reported in 12 subjects (10 with Affective Disorders, 2 without Mental Disorder). The segmented visual scale ESTA-III was used, which yields scores for two dimensions: Mood and Drive. Self-assessment of AS was carried out every 8 hours for about a month. The statistical procedure is underlined. Theoretical implications of findings are discussed.
