 Title    Influence of Lithium Ions on Human Circadian Rhythms  
 Abstract    Lithium carbonate lengthens the circadian period in humans under temporal isolation (arctic summer four groups. L i+ ions are known to change the period length of several circadian rhythm s in plants and animals [1], In all cases reported so far the effect is a lengthening o f the free running period. An experiment has been performed on a single person in an isolation unit to test whether L i+ acts on hum an circadian rhythms and the results provided have not been conclusive [2]. We have conducted an experiment to determine the influence o f L i+ on the hum an circadian system under arctic sum m er conditions. The continuous light and abscence o f other 24 h tim e cues allows free run o f hum an circadian rhythms [3]. In this brief report, we present some salient results of the effects of Li+ on the tem perature-, sleep-wakefulness-, and activity rhythm in some humans. More details of this investigation will be published elsewhere.
