Abstract:

Individual cognitive performance data taken under a 36-hour fatigue protocol, are assessed for predictability using self-reports of previous fatigue experience. The performance data are from three-person teams of Air Battle Management students, from Tyndall AFB, FL, participating in a larger study. Variables related to age at first remembered sustained wakefulness and frequency of sustained wakefulness were significantly related to individual cognitive performance. Applications for the current research and suggestions for future research are given.
