  Outcome Measures
  Show All Outcome Measures

1.  Primary:   Change in Psychomotor Vigilance Task (PVT) Median Reaction Time   [ Time Frame: 10, 30, 60, 90, 120, and 150 minutes after drug administration (averaged for all time points for each subject) ]

2.  Secondary:   PVT Additional Measure #1, Change in Lapse Frequency   [ Time Frame: 10, 30, 60, 90, 120, and 150 minutes after drug administration (averaged for all time points for each subject) ]

3.  Secondary:   PVT Additional Measure #2, Change in Duration of Lapse Domain   [ Time Frame: 10, 30, 60, 90, 120, and 150 minutes after drug administration (averaged for all time points for each subject) ]

4.  Secondary:   PVT Additional Measure #3, Change in Optimum Response Times   [ Time Frame: 10, 30, 60, 90, 120, and 150 minutes after drug administration (averaged for all time points for each subject) ]

5.  Secondary:   PVT Additional Measure #4, Change in False Response Frequency   [ Time Frame: 10, 30, 60, 90, 120, and 150 minutes after drug administration (averaged for all time points for each subject) ]

6.  Secondary:   PVT Additional Measure #5, Change in Visual Analog Scale Rating of Sleepiness at the Completion of PVT   [ Time Frame: 10, 30, 60, 90, 120, and 150 minutes after drug administration (averaged for all time points for each subject) ]

7.  Secondary:   Change in Stanford Sleepiness Scale   [ Time Frame: 10, 30, 60, 90, 120, and 150 minutes after drug administration (averaged for all time points for each subject) ]

  Limitations and Caveats
  Hide Limitations and Caveats

Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
EEG power was specified as a secondary outcome measure. Second-by-second manual artifact removal has been necessary to ensure interpretable data. This artifact removal is in progress and results will be reported separately.
