The purpose of this research study is to determine how well individualized caffeine dosing recommendations work to recover performance during continuous extended sleep loss. Results from this study will be used to help develop technology that can be deployed in the field to prevent sleep loss related declines in performance in soldiers. Work has been done to develop models that predict behavior based on previous sleep patterns, but these models have not been tested against laboratory results. This study aims to test how well one specific version of this model works. Results from this study may be used to help develop technology that can be used by the military to track and prevent sleep loss related declines in performance for soldiers in the field.
