One explanation for decreasing performance in sleep deprivation is the occurrence of microsleep. Microsleep is defined as brief (several seconds) runs of theta or delta activities that break through the otherwise beta or alpha EEG of waking. It has been seen to increase with sleep deprivation. In studies in which polysomnography is recorded simultaneously, microsleep impairs continuity of cognitive function and occurs prior to performance failure. However, the occurrence of microsleep has not been shown in most instances of polysomnographic correlated performance failure. Other explanations for performance impairments include sensory perceptual impairments such as the development of visual neglect phenomena. [ 25 ]
