Abstract:
Research shows that individuals who have chronic sleep deprivation adapt to feelings of tiredness and do not report feeling a sense of sleepiness. However, they display the same decreases in psychomotor vigilance, working memory and cognitive performance, as someone who has not slept for two days. These drivers experience the same consequences as acutely sleep deprived drivers, with increased distractibility, but these symptoms are often hidden or unrecognised.
