Discriminate analysis of rhythm parameters (amplitude and acrophase) among the control group and the depressive groups (Dfe and Dc)
Variable Control vs Dfe Control vs Dc Dfe vs Dc
Amplitude
  Temperature 0.820 -0.269 0.240
  Activity -0.664 0.912 0.398
  Light -0.096 0.178 0.252
Achrophase
  Temperature -0.442 0.120 -0.111
  Activity 0.373 -0.104 0.174
  Light 0.039 -0.047 -0.053

Dfe Depressives-first episode, Dc Depressives-chronic, Amplitude: difference between mesor and peak; Acrophase: clock time of the peak value.
