The Effects of Pulling an All-Nighter

About The Study

Sleep deprivation is a common problem with many consequences for mental and physical health. Our modern society has consisted of environments becoming noisier, irregular work schedules, and bad sleep habits are becoming more common. In consequence, this has affected our cognitive performances such as memory, attention, and vigilance. Our sleep deprivation study aims to further understand the effects of deprived sleep on cognitive functions, by examining brain function during recovery sleep. Here in the sleep laboratory of PERFORM Centre at Concordia University, we are using state of the art brain imaging technology to investigate mechanisms underlying the sleep-dependent adaptive responses to sleep deprivation.
