Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to test the hypothesis that sleep and performance depend on length of time awake, length of time asleep, the amount of sleep over several sleep episodes, and circadian phase.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Sleep Sleep Deprivation Insufficient Sleep Syndrome Behavioral: Sleep:wake 1 Behavioral: Sleep:wake 2

Detailed Description:
The purpose of this study is to test the hypothesis that sleep and performance depend on length of time awake, length of time asleep, the amount of sleep over several sleep episodes, and circadian phase. Inpatient sleep and performance data will be collected from healthy volunteers.

Official Title: Sleep Duration Required to Restore Performance During Chronic Sleep Restriction
Study Start Date : April 2012
Primary Completion Date : June 2016
Study Completion Date : June 2016

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Sleep:wake 2
Sleep and wake durations for arm 2 for inpatient portion of protocol. .There are a variety of sleep and wake durations during the protocol; some of these are longer and some are shorter and some are the same as in arm 1.
Behavioral: Sleep:wake 2
Sleep and Wake durations for arm2
Experimental: Sleep:wake 1
Sleep and wake durations for arm 1 of the inpatient portion of the protocol. There are a variety of sleep and wake durations during the protocol; some of these are longer and some are shorter and some are the same as in arm 2.
Behavioral: Sleep:wake 1
Sleep and Wake durations for arm 1



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Psychomotor Vigilance Task (PVT) performance [ Time Frame: PVT during waking for arms 1 and 2 during the 32-day inpatient portion of the protocol ]
    PVT metrics are reaction time. It is measured when the participants are awake during the inpatient portion of the protocol.
