Abstract:

Sleep deprivation is one of the most common stressors that Airmen face during military missions. Exposure to this stressor will diminish performance increase the risk of make mistakes during critical assignments. Previous investigations have suggested that damaging brain effect of sleep deprivation may be caused by accumulation of reactive oxidant species, triggered by the decrease in the antioxidant defense and malfunction of the endoplasm reticulum ER molecular chaperones, and consequently, causing an increase in neuronal cell death.
