Abstract:

A multitrial probe-recogntion experiment was conducted using five male subjects under normal conditions and under conditions of 24-hour sleep-deprivation. Results indicated a predicted decrement in short-term recognition memory following sleep loss due to the increased incidence of lapses, periods of lowered reactive capacity, which apparently prevented the encoding of to-be-recognized items.
