Scientists and Sleep Medicine experts recently conducted a study examining the neurocognitive consequences of Sleep Deprivation for associates.
According to the study’s findings, sleep deprivation has considerable social, financial, and health-related costs for American workers. Researchers found that Sleep Deprivation inhibits cognitive performance with psychomotor speed, mental focus, working memory, and higher cognitive abilities. Additionally, Sleep Deprived associates create hazardous working conditions due to: involuntary microsleeps; attention-intensive performance omissions and error commissions; and cognitive slowing in subject-paced tasks and increased errors with time pressure.
