Cyclical aspects of mood reports were examined by spectral analysis which is a technique for examining the underlying cycles in a series of data collected over time by testing the relative "fit" of cycles of varying frequencies. It is plotted in a spectral density plot with the x axis representing the different potential frequencies in a series and the y axis representing an assessment of relative fit or importance.
