Frederick Brown investigates the neurobehavioral rhythms of life that underlie all human activity. They include daily (circadian, sleep/wake), monthly (lunar phase, reproductive), and seasonal ("wintertime blues") rhythms. His research involves measuring the daily rhythms of cognitive and performance variables, and determining any effects on them from fatigue and sleep deprivation. His collaborators include human factors and engineering colleagues at the Pennsylvania Transportation Institute, and scientists at the Walter Reed Army Institute for Research, Silver Spring, MD.
