College students often deprive themselves of sleep so they may satisfy their academic, occupational, and social obligations. However, sleep loss causes impairments in reaction time and vigilance as well as increases in sleepiness, fatigue, and negative mood states (1-3). Sleep deprivation of one day, as compared with nonsleep-deprived conditions, also results in preferences for tasks requiring less effort (4). Human attention capacity is finite and tasks are selectively chosen depending on the… Expand

Sleep deprivation, effort allocation and performance.
TLDR
This chapter reviews current research on the interplay between sleep deprivation, effort and performance and integrates these findings into an effort-based decision-making framework in which sleep-related performance impairments may result from a voluntary decision to withdraw effort. Expand
Sleep’s Role in Effortful Performance and Sociability
How we perform at home, at work, with our families and with others is a function of many factors. Often the role of sleep in those activities is overlooked. Although people may anecdotally recognizeExpand
The effects of sleep loss on capacity and effort
TLDR
The purpose of this review is to bring together research across sleep disciplines to clarify the substrates that constitute and influence capacity for performance, consider how the loss of sleep influences access to those resources, and consider how these responses reflect a system reacting to changes in the resource environment. Expand
Interactions between sleep habits and self-control
TLDR
The goal of this mini-review is to explore the intersection between sleep habits and self-control and encourage researchers to focus on a new area of research that integrates what are at present largely separate areas in psychology and human neurosciences. Expand
Sleep and effort in adolescent athletes
TLDR
Sleep disturbance in adolescence may magnify the challenges they experience and cause them to underestimate their ability to meet those challenges. Expand
Should I study or should I go (to sleep)? The influence of test schedule on the sleep behavior of undergraduates and its association with performance
TLDR
Delaying test start time may prevent the reduction in sleep duration, which may also improve school performance, and educational policies should include information for students about the impact of sleep on learning and of the consequences of reduced sleep duration. Expand
Sleep deprivation affects reactivity to positive but not negative stimuli.
TLDR
The results suggest that sleep-deprived persons are more likely to respond less to positive events than negative events, and sleep deprivation could impact reactivity to emotional stimuli through automated attentional and self-regulatory processes. Expand
An Integrated Sleep and Reward Processing Model of Major Depressive Disorder.
TLDR
It is argued that the relationship of sleep disturbance and negative treatment outcomes may be mediated by alterations in neural reward processing in individuals with blunted trait-level reward responsivity. Expand
The Mediating Role of Pathological Worry in Associations Between Dissociative Experiences and Sleep Quality Among Health Staff
There has been a growing interest in determining the antecedents of the significant associations between dissociative symptomatology and sleep. The aim of this study was to investigate the mediationExpand
Sleep and Organizational Behavior: Implications for Workplace Productivity and Safety
TLDR
Developing a deeper understanding of how sleep habits and sleepiness impact workers and the organization can help provide the necessary background for human resource management to develop more progressive support networks for employees that benefit both the worker and the organizations. Expand

The effect of sleep loss on next day effort
TLDR
It is demonstrated that sleep loss results in the choice of low‐effort behavior that helps maintain accurate responding, and significantly less‐demanding non‐academic tasks are selected. Expand
Cumulative sleepiness, mood disturbance, and psychomotor vigilance performance decrements during a week of sleep restricted to 4-5 hours per night.
TLDR
It is suggested that cumulative nocturnal sleep debt had a dynamic and escalating analog in cumulative daytime sleepiness and that asymptotic or steady-state sleepiness was not achieved in response to sleep restriction. Expand
How sleep deprivation affects psychological variables related to college students' cognitive performance.
TLDR
The findings indicate that college students are not aware of the extent to which sleep deprivation negatively affects their ability to complete cognitive tasks. Expand
Effects of Sleep Deprivation and User Interface on Complex Performance: A Multilevel Analysis of Compensatory Control
TLDR
The effects of sleep deprivation on performance in an automated process control task based on a simplified life support system with two types of operator control panel interface are examined, providing strong evidence in favor of the compensatory control model and argue for the use of complex, multilevel tasks in the analysis of performance under stress. Expand
Effects of sleep loss on sustained cognitive performance during a command and control simulation
TLDR
The research described here addresses the limitations of earlier studies by requiring and measuring performance on a continuous basis in a computerized laboratory environment that produces greater mood and performance decrements as a function of sleep loss than previous, less-demanding studies. Expand
Performance Decrement as a Function of Total Sleep Loss and Task Duration
To determine the effect of task duration and its sensitivity to total sleep loss, measures of speed and accuracy on the Wilkinson addition test were obtained from 11 Navy enlisted men for 4 baselineExpand
Effects of sleep deprivation on performance: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
It is found that mood is more affected by sleep deprivation than either cognitive or motor performance and that partial sleep deprivation has a more profound effect on functioning than either long-term or short-term sleep deprivation. Expand
Health-Related Variables and Academic Performance Among First-Year College Students: Implications for Sleep and Other Behaviors
TLDR
Sleep habits, particularly wake-up times, accounted for the largest amount of variance in grade point averages and the number of paid or volunteer hours worked per week was associated with lower average grades. Expand
Pharmacological characterization of performance on a concurrent lever pressing/feeding choice procedure: effects of dopamine antagonist, cholinomimetic, sedative and stimulant drugs
TLDR
The results indicate that low/moderate doses of the DA antagonists haloperidol,cis-flupenthixol and SCH 23390 can suppress lever pressing in doses that leave the animal directed towards food acquisition and consumption. Expand
Nucleus accumbens dopamine depletions alter relative response allocation in a T-maze cost/benefit task
TLDR
The present findings are not consistent with the notion that nucleus accumbens dopamine depletion rendered the animals unable to climb the barrier, or set an absolute ceiling on the number of barrier crossings the animals could perform. Expand
