Behavior and Sleep Deprivation

Introduction

          In addition to extensive study of the physiological, biochemical, and mental/emotional behavior may not sound as complicated as quantifying a neurotransmitter in the brain or as technical as looking at EEG waves, but this field can be tricky, as human behavior must first be reduced and defined to a bare minimum.

       Researchers often use "performance tests" to measure behavior.  Such tests include:

  Measuring behavior by breaking down human actions into
smaller units and recording the number of times the units occur
  Measuring the speed of response to a stimulus
  Measuring the accuracy of a response to a stimulus
