Abstract:

The relation of sleep stages to performance is reviewed.

There was no significant difference in waking behavior and performance in those subjects denied REM sleep or slow-wave sleep from those subjects allowed all stages of sleep on recovery nights after total sleep loss. The significance of stages of sleep to waking behavior is not yet clear.
