Faculty mentor: Christopher Depner

We took 14 healthy adult subjects and had them complete a protocol that consisted of a 14 day in-lab visit with specific sleep opportunities. Throughout the study participants tracked their cognitive performance by completing the PVT test and Karolinska Sleepiness Scale. This allowed us to analyze their reaction speeds and sleepiness levels throughout a work week of insufficient sleep and after a weekend recovery sleep period.
