  1. 1. Gainesville State College Psychology 1101 – 4519 November 30, 2010 Researchers: • Andres Burden • Dana Farmer Sleep Study
  2. 2. Clinical studies have estimated that the average adult sleeps 7.5 to 8 hours on a daily basis. After years of intensive research and studying, the sleep function remains unknown; however, abundant evidence demonstrates that lack of sleep can have serious consequences, including increased risk of depressive disorders, impaired breathing, and heart disease. In addition, excessive daytime sleepiness resulting from sleep disturbance is associated with memory deficits, impaired social and occupational function. Alcohol and drug consumption can induce sleep disorders by disrupting the process and length of sleep states and by altering sleeping behaviors all together. Sleep Study INTRODUCTION:
  3. 3. To examine how high consumption or frequent use of substances (drugs, alcohol, caffeine, etc.) may exacerbate sleep deprivation; and subsequently, to the development of sleeping disorders. The continuous deprivation of sleep may result in anger, irritability, anxiety, depression, lack of focusing, and the ability to concentrate; significantly deteriorating one’s everyday life. Sleep Study OBJECTIVE:
  4. 4. For our survey, we combined different sleep academic researches into a survey that targets a randomly selected audience to study the cause and effect relationship between the side effects of substance abuse and sleeping behaviors. This survey was designed with logic to enable us to study the independent and dependable variables. The audience was encouraged to answer the survey truthfully as the survey is completely anonymous to the public and researchers. Our limitation was the fact that we did not know which participant took the survey, and some behaviors and/or answers remain unexplained regardless of substance or drug abuse and frequency. Sleep Study SURVEY:
  5. 5. The data was extracted from the academic survey in a way that would demonstrate the cause and effect relationship between the independent and dependant variables. The type of information extracted from reports included the following: •Details of study design and inclusion/exclusion criteria. •Details of the population such as gender, age, ethnicity, and type of sleep disorder. •Details of the intervention such as the formulation, dosage, timing, frequency and duration of administration as well as the type and frequency of usage of concurrent substances and/or drugs. •Results obtained for predetermined, question-specific outcomes. Sleep Study RESULTS:
  6. 6. In addition, a trained reviewer extracted relevant data from a given report and a second reviewer verified the data that were extracted for that article for accuracy and completeness. Disagreements between reviewers were resolved by discussion and consensus. Sleep Study RESULTS:
  7. 7. After getting over 300 candidates to participate in our research and carefully analyzing all data, we determined that use of substances affects the quality and structure of sleeping. We have been able to prove that frequent users of legal or illegal substances have poor sleeping experiences, which affects every day life; and subsequently, the possible development of sleeping disorders. In addition to bad sleeping behaviors, frequent users also experience a higher level of irritability, exhaustion, bad temper, depression, and poor concentration throughout the day. Overall, we have been able to conclude that the use of unsupervised substances has a negative impact on normal behaviors by interfering with the communication between nerve cells and the central nervous system. Sleep Study Conclusion:
  8. 8. After gathering and analyzing all of our data carefully, we realized that our subject is a very broad study. Many researchers, universities, professors, doctors, and scientists have spent years of intensive research trying to explain the phenomena of sleep. There are many theories as to the purpose of sleep and how the sleep function itself works; however, we would like to expand our research or welcome fellow students to continue our path by explaining the cause and effect of different hypothesis we gathered after conducting our extensive research. The most interesting ones are: Sleep Study Researches:
  9. 9. The most interesting ones are: • Frequent substance users labeled themselves as uneducated about the subject. Will promoting educational campaigns perhaps help to diminish sleeping disorders? • 75% heavy alcohol users would like to visit a sleeping disorder center or have been diagnosed with a sleep apnea. Is alcohol one of the main causes for sleep apnea? Sleep Study Researches:
