This research note discusses experiments investigating the infrastructure of arousal during the habitual waking day following one night of total sleep deprivation. Based on the data collected during the experiment, it can be concluded that wakeability, the ability to remain awake, and sleepability, the ability to fall asleep, following sleep deprivation, are not complimentary processes, but are probably governed by different mechanisms. The practical implications of these results to the scheduling of replacement naps are discussed. Keywords Ultradian Rythms, Circadian Rythms, Reaction Time Task.
