Sleep deprivation study at DLR Cologne
Sleepless for 38 hours, spending the night in an altitude simulation chamber and undertaking a series of performance tests often left the second batch of eight subjects exhausted. They were part of a study conducted at the sleep laboratory at the German Aerospace Center, DLR. Surprising though it may sound, this study is expected to help pilots monitor their own performance capabilities during night flights. DLR researchers are also examining tests that, within just a few minutes, can provide information about the rate at which human response times slow down.
