Do you really need to go to bed? This lecture introduces a study in the effects of your quest to evade downtime: sleep deprivation. In order to find the answer to how the TGers manage without sleep, UiO: Campus TG arranges an extensive survey of the sleep deprivation and the caffeines effect on cognitive abilites.
