Sleep Loss and Its Effects on Performance
The effects of sleep loss on human task performance are discussed under total, partial, and selective deprivations of sleep. Some of the frequently used psychological tasks in studies of total sleep loss are described in sufficient detail so that experimenters could choose, on the basis of materials presented in this monograph, adequate tasks to fit their experimental objectives. Factors which play critical roles in determining the degree of task sensitivity to total sleep loss are listed. Effects of shortened hours of sleep on human task performance are discussed. Effects of selected sleep deprivation on performance are also commented upon. The commentary is followed by a bibliography on sleep deprivation with author and subject indices.
