Example text

After four baseline days, 12 subjects were totally sleep-deprived for two nights. Total sleep deprivation was followed by either (1) uninterrupted recovery sleep for five nights (the control group, N = 4); (2) two nights of REM deprivation and then three nights of uninterrupted recovery sleep (this REM-deprived group was allowed all nonREM sleep, N = 4); or (3) two mghts of stage 4 sleep deprivation and then three nights of uninterrupted sleep (this group was allowed all stages of sleep but stage 4, N = 4).

Agnew, Webb, and Williams (1967), however, did report some psychological differences between six REM-deprived and six stage 4-deprived subjects. The stage 4-deprived subjects displayed more hypochondriacal and depressive reactions while the REM-deprived subjects showed increased irritability and emotional lability.
