PERFORMANCE UNDER SLEEP LOSS AND FATIGUE
Recent research on the effects of acute sleep loss shows greater effects for longer tasks duration, greater monotony, greater signal and response uncertainty, and less knowledge of results. It is presumed that cumulative, chronic sleep loss has similar or more serious effects, and prolonged sleep loss (over 100 hours) may result in psychotic-like states. (Author)
