Sleepiness has repeatedly been demonstrated to affect performance on a variety of cognitive tasks. While the effects of total sleep deprivation (TSD) have been extensively studied, acute partial sleep deprivation (PSD), a more frequent form of sleep loss, has been studied much less often. The present study examined the effects of sleep deprivation on novel tasks involving classic sensory, working, and permanent memory systems. While the tasks did implicate different memory systems, they shared…

Effects of Total and Partial Sleep Deprivation on Reflection Impulsivity and Risk-Taking in Deliberative Decision-Making
Results pointed to differential consequences of sleep deprivation depending on the habitual way to respond during decision-making involving deliberative reasoning processes, as well as putative interaction between sleep loss effect and individual difference factors.
The Effects of Total Sleep Deprivation on Attention Capture Processes in Young and Older Adults: An ERP Study.
BACKGROUND The present study investigated whether sleep deprivation affects attention capture in young and older adults using event-related potentials (ERPs). METHODS Eleven young adults (20-30 y)
Sleep-deprived cognitive impairment in aging mice is alleviated by rapamycin.
The observations from this study suggest that aging mice would be productive models to study pathobiology and therapeutic intervention of cognitive impairment triggered by age-related sleeping disorders in people.
The synchrony effect revisited: chronotype, time of day and cognitive performance in a semantic analogy task
Morning types appeared to cope better with the synchrony effect than evening types: at suboptimal times, morning types solved the analogy detection task more efficient; that is faster with the same accuracy and without the investment of more cognitive resources.
Time to think: Subjective sleep quality, trait anxiety and university start time.
A cross-sectional study to evaluate the effect of subjective sleep quality on autonomic functions in different age groups of adults
Ageing in adults affects the sleep-quality, reduces the sleep duration and decreases the sleep efficiency; these contribute to autonomic dysfunction as increased sympathetic activity and decreased parasympathetic activity in older adults as compared to younger adults.

The Effects of Two Types of Sleep Deprivation on Visual Working Memory Capacity and Filtering Efficiency
Components of visual working memory are differentially vulnerable to the effects of sleep deprivation, and different types ofSleep deprivation impact visualWorking memory to different degrees, which suggest findings have implications for operational settings where individuals may need to perform with inadequate sleep.
Sleep deprivation: Impact on cognitive performance
Cognitive recovery processes seem to be more demanding in partial sleep restriction than in total SD, and studies on its effects on more demanding cognitive functions are lacking.
Effects of sleep deprivation on cognition.
Chronic partial sleep loss increases the facilitatory role of a masked prime in a word recognition task
The findings suggest that while no evidence of impairment to lexical access was observed after sleep loss, an increase in automatic processing may occur as a consequence of compensatory mechanisms.
Effects of Partial and Acute Total Sleep Deprivation on Performance across Cognitive Domains, Individuals and Circadian Phase
Overall, Subjective Alertness and Sustained Attention were more affected by both partial and total sleep deprivation than other cognitive domains and tasks including n-back tasks of Working Memory, even when implemented with a high executive load.
Sleep loss impairs short and novel language tasks having a prefrontal focus
Although the sleep deprivation literature advocates that short, novel and stimulating tests would not be expected to be sensitive to sleep loss, recent sleep loss findings using neuropsychological tests focussing on the prefrontal cortex, indicate that such tests may challenge this maxim.
Sleep Deprivation and Vigilant Attention
PVT results during extended periods of wakefulness reveal the presence of interacting circadian and homeostatic sleep drives and the interplay of “top‐down” and “bottom‐up” attention in producing the unstable and unpredictable patterns of behavior that are the hallmark of the sleep‐deprived state.
