Cognitive, physical and physiological responses of school boy cricketers to a 30-over batting simulation

Authors: David Goble, Candice Jo-Anne Christie

Journal: Journal of Sports Sciences

The purpose of this study was to assess how cognitive and physical performance are affected during a prolonged, fatigue-inducing cricket-batting simulation. Fifteen amateur batters from three Eastern Cape schools in South Africa were recruited (mean ± […]

Qualitative similarities in cognitive impairment associated with 24 h of sustained wakefulness and a blood alcohol concentration of 0.05%

Authors: Marina G Falleti, Paul Maruff, Alexander Collie, David G Darby, Michael McStephen

Journal: Journal of Sleep Research

Year Published: 2003

Previous studies that have quantified fatigue-related cognitive impairment as blood alcohol concentration (BAC) equivalents have been limited by two issues: the effect of practice on tests of cognition and, more importantly, the statistic used to quantify […]

Fatigue-related impairment in the speed, accuracy and variability of psychomotor performance: comparison with blood alcohol levels

Authors: Paul Maruff, Marina G Falleti, Alex Collie, David Darby, Michael McStephen

Journal: Journal of Sleep Research

Year Published: 2005

Cognitive performance is impaired by fatigue arising from sustained wakefulness and alcohol. Three recent papers directly compared the effects of increasing fatigue and blood alcohol concentration (%BAC) to provide a framework for understanding fatigue-related cognitive impairment. […]
