Abstract : The function of this symposium was to bring together workers in three areas that in one way or another, are concerned with a common problem: variations in work-sleep schedules. These three areas are (1) shift work, (2) sleep, and particularly that area concerned with sleep loss and the fragmentation of sleep schedules, and (3) biological rhythms. In addition to social and health problems, which were covered in this symposium, shift work inevitably changes sleep; sleep problems are a major complaint of shift workers. Any variations in work-sleep schedules immediately involves, in a complex fashion, the basic biological rhythms.
