A ring plot of circadian rhythm

The 3D disk plots of mouse running behavior clearly show the cyclical behavior of these animals but they aren’t perfect:  One problem with the presentation is the data at the center of the disk occupy less space for the same amount of information as data towards the edge.  A second problem is that it is hard to carry these disks around in your pocket as the peaks tend to break off.

A solution to both these problems is to print the data as a bracelet; this way the data all have about the same radii and you can wear the graph. circadian bracelet 1.jpg
