Each morning after waking up, participants completed a psychomotor vigilance task, memory search task and unstable tracking task to measure neurobehavioral performance.
Three times during each night, at the start of their shifts, midway through, and at the end of their shifts, participants completed a 15-minute psychomotor vigilance task (PVT) using a handheld PVT electronic device that measured the subject's reaction times to tasks.
Students in the sleep deprivation studies used a psychomotor vigilance task device to measure their reflexes.
To investigate cognitive function, we used the Stroop task, the psychomotor vigilance task (PVT), and the operation span task (OSPAN) with concomitant mathematical processing to assess selective attention and choice reaction time, vigilance and alertness, and working memory capacity, respectively.
