Risk‐taking and other effects of sleep loss on brain function and behaviour
Abstract:The sleep‐deprivation paradigm remains a powerful approach in the study of the functions of sleep. When combined with the assessment of novel dependent measures or integration of multiple standard variables new insights may be obtained. This issue of the Journal of Sleep Research contains several studies that shed some new light on the effects of sleep deprivation and sleepiness. In addition, several papers emphasize the need to better characterize and understand the consequences of insomnia.
