dc.description.abstractThe experiment was designed to test the effect of sleep deprivation on basic levels of cognitive function. We predicted that there would be decreased performance during tests of cognitive function with reduced levels of sleep. Fifty-seven students between the ages of 20 and 22 were asked to fill out a short survey asking about their sleep the night before and were tested while attached to a Pulse oximeter. All subjects participated in a reaction test, a Stroop test and a simple multiplication table. Participants were asked to come back to repeat the experiment during a following week, all subjects were then split into intra- and inter-personal for those who were able to return and those who were not, respectively. Our results for interpersonal were mixed, in that there was no significant correlation for reaction time. There was significant correlation for higher performance in the math test with more sleep, however, the Stroop test showed a significant correlation with decreased levels of sleep. For intra-personal there was no significant correlation between the amount of sleep received and any of the cognitive tests. The results of our study showed no significant correlation in the amount of sleep received with basic cognitive functionen_US
