Impact of Sleep Restriction on Performance in Adults
“Impact of Sleep Restriction on Performance in Adults”
The overall goal of this project is to look at the effects of long-term, sustained sleep restriction (SR) in adults, and assess the effects on mood and cognitive and physical performance.
Behavioral - Sleep Restriction (SR)
Participants will be asked to keep their habitual wake time constant but delay their bedtime to achieve a reduction of 1.5 hours in total sleep time. A delay in bedtimes was chosen rather than advancing wake-up time because it most closely reflects differences in sleep timing behavior between short and normal sleepers.
