PERFORMANCES AND MOOD, DURING AND AFTER GRADUAL SLEEP REDUCTION

The consequences of gradual sleep restriction were investigated by objective performance tests, medical examinations, psychological tests, and self-report. Gradual sleep restriction does not result in measurable behavioral effects, but subjective fatigue limits the extent to which gradual sleep restriction can be tolerated. Total sleep time was still 1.0-2.5 hours below baseline at the end of a 12-month follow-up period, but measures of well-being were at baseline levels. (Author)
