Unstimulated (i.e., presumably unaffected by stressors or other factors – ‘normal’/baseline level) cortisol follows a diurnal rhythm that is dictated by the sleep-wake cycle, rather than a light-dark cycle: there is a typical and consistent flood of cortisol in the body upon awakening, generally declining thereafter, and cortisol secretion follows a series of peaks and troughs throughout the day, [with a small peak associated with a lunch-time meal (Preussner et al., 1997, in Pollard & Ice, 2007; Kirschbaum & Hellhammer, 2000),] which tends to taper off to a more steady, less steep decline in the afternoon. It is for this reason that laboratory studies examining cortisol generally schedule post-noon testing sessions. [Therefore, all participants were scheduled to commence the session at 3pm in the current study (see Appendix 14).] Variations in this cycle are seen in clinical populations – for instance, a blunted response has been demonstrated in individuals with depression and those experiencing socioeconomic hardship, while extremely elevated, or again, blunted cortisol release can result from a variety of medical conditions. Cortisol secretion can be affected by everyday factors such as consumption of food or beverages prior to sampling, or disrupted sleep patterns. [As a result, stringent guidelines were set forth to control for these factors, and various control measures were distributed (see above) to screen for possible psychopathologies (see Appendices 10 and 11).]

Cortisol in saliva is a particularly robust biologically-active compound, and samples remain viable for several days at room temperature, as well as when frozen and refrozen.

[Clinically, hyper-secretion of cortisol can lead to the development of Cushing’s disease. while hypo-secretion can result in Addison’s disease.]
