Are Children Like Werewolves? Full Moon and Its Association with Sleep and Activity Behaviors in an International Sample of Children. Introduction Folklore has associated behaviors of animals and humans, and even werewolves, to moon phases of the lunar cycle.

Are Children Like Werewolves? Full Moon and Its Association with Sleep and Activity Behaviors in an International Sample of Children

However, there may be some evidence behind the myth. A good example to illustrate lunar related rhythms in the animal world is the phenomenon of the Palolo worms, which reproduce by swarming during the last quarter of the moon (1, 2). In humans, the empirical evidence that the moon exerts an influence on behaviors is weak (3). However, Cajochen et al. (4) reported that around full moon, sleep duration was reduced by 20 min and sleep quality was decreased in 33 adults measured under controlled laboratory conditions using polysomnography. By contrast, a recent population-based study of adults from Switzerland (n = 2125) provided no evidence of a significant influence of lunar phases on human sleep (6). Materials and Methods Setting Participants The current sample comprised 9- to 11-year-old children from the 12 ISCOLE study sites.
