This is the protocol for my sleep experiment that I will start on 2020-04-30. I will not sleep for 75 hours and will evaluate the effects of doing so on my cognition using SAT (a 3-hour test that involves reading and math), and Aimgod custom scenario I called guzey_arena_0.

I'm going to attempt the SAT after 72 hours of no sleep and will live stream myself here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hsdHM1vjjes

Methods

I'm going to remain inside throughout the experiment.

I will work, play video games, watch movies, browse the internet, read, walk around the apartment, do sports, and try to stimulate myself in other ways. However, I will not use any medications and any psychoactive drugs (caffeine, nicotine, etc.). I also did not use any caffeine, alcohol, tobacco, and/or medications in the 2 weeks before the experiment.

This is the protocol for my sleep experiment that I will start on 2020-04-03. I will sleep 4 hours per night for 2 weeks and evaluate the effects of doing so on my cognition using psychomotor vigilance task (essentially, a reaction test), SAT (a 3 hour test that involves reading and math), and Aimgod custom scenario I called guzey_arena_0 (video) (this is a first-person shooter trainer game that allows the creation of custom scenarios. The scenario I created requires constant attention, eye-hand coordination, tactical thinking).
