Circadian and sleep-wake dependent impact on neurobehavioral function
TLDR
It is concluded that circadian phase and time awake have a substantial impact on short and stimulating planning tasks, which are related to the prefrontal cortex, and on sequence learning that requires activation of striatal brain regions.
Continuous Alertness Assessments: Using EOG Glasses to Unobtrusively Monitor Fatigue Levels In-The-Wild
TLDR
This work recorded the eye movements of 16 participants over the course of two weeks in-the-wild and built a robust model of diurnal alertness changes, which allows for unobtrusive and continuous monitoring of alertness levels throughout the day.
THE EFFECT OF SLEEP QUANTITY AND QUALITY ON DIRECT CURRENT POTENTIAL IN COLLEGIATE AMERICAN FOOTBALL PLAYERS
OF DISSERTATION THE EFFECT OF SLEEP QUANTITY AND QUALITY ON DIRECT CURRENT POTENTIAL IN COLLEGIATE AMERICAN FOOTBALL PLAYERS Direct current (DC) potential is an objective measure of the functional
Compare the educational achievement of medical students with different circadian rhythms in difficult courses of basic sciences
TLDR
This study showed that evening students experienced academic failure in difficult courses, which required a more cognitive performance, and it is recommended that difficult specialized courses be presented at hours when all student groups have a better cognitive performance.
School start time, sleepiness and functioning in Norwegian adolescents
The study's aim was to investigate how school start time affects sleepiness and functioning in Norwegian 10th grade students (N = 106). The intervention school started at 0930 hours on Mondays and
Quantifying sleep and performance of West Point cadets: a baseline study
TLDR
The initial findings of a four-year longitudinal study undertaken to assess the total amount of sleep received by cadets at the United States Military Academy revealed that cadets received much less nighttime sleep during the Fall academic semester than they reported receiving in the 30 days before Cadet Basic Training.
Psychomotor Vigilance Performance: Neurocognitive Assay Sensitive to Sleep Loss
TLDR
This chapter reviews one neurobehavioral assay that has met the criteria for validly and reliably reflecting fundamental aspects of waking functions that are altered by sleep deprivation—the psychomotor vigilance task (PVT).

Rhythm of the Night: Brain Activity and Performance on a Sustained Attention Task is Modulated by Circadian Typology and Time of Day
TLDR
Performance and EEG differences were observed between participants’ optimal testing time, where the authors found decreased performance in out-of-phase testing sessions, suggesting that differences in task performance may be instantiated through transient changes in brain network function.
Fidelity of Information Processing on a Psychomotor Vigilance Task Predicts Changes in Self-Reported Sleepiness Ratings
TLDR
This work aimed to explore how performance on a psychomotor vigilance task (PVT) relates to changes in self-reported sleepiness in a rested condition and predicted greater change in sleepiness (pre-to-post PVT) and higher post-sleepiness even after adjusting for pre- sleepiness, mean reciprocal reaction time, insomnia, and other potential confounds.
