Abstract:

This grant made possible technical advances at the University of Pennsylvania site of the AFOSR PRET Center, substantially improving this sites capability to study the neurobehavioral and neurobiological deficits associated with sleep deprivation, excessive work demands, stressors, night shift activities, jet lag, and the development of countermeasures in the context of simulated sustained operations. The instrumentation purchased has markedly enhanced our laboratorys ability to track in a discrete temporal range from milliseconds to minutes human performance errors in stressful situations relative to behavior time-locking video, physiology cardiovascular ECG and EEG, and stress hormones glucocorticoids, catecholamines.
