Yeah Science - 12/06/2013 - Are you tired, or just drunk?

On the 12th of June, we gleefully dipped our collective toes back into the gurgling river of science.

Our third speaker was Samuel Duncan, speaking on the effects of sleep deprivation on performance. Sam presents in his talk an experiment in which he is the subject - and he performs a psychomotor vigilance test before our very eyes.

The results are fascinating, so click here to view the vid on youtube, or cast your vile jellies to the embedded vid below:

Samuel Duncan works in logistics planning and transport, and has been tracking his personal sleep data for longer than a normal person would willingly admit.

More Yeah Science, coming soon....
