The findings of visual impairment during total sleep deprivation were used as a basis for a possible link between vision and sleep. It was proposed that the level of visual load imposed during sleep deprivation was an important variable, and would have a substantial effect upon recovery sleep. Six young male subjects underwent two conditions of 64 h of sleep deprivation on separate occasions. One condition incorporated a high visual load, and the other a low load. Exercise and sound were balanced. All night sleep EEGs were taken for two baseline nights, and also for two recovery nights following each condition. There was a significant increase of stage 4 on all recovery nights and a REM rebound on the second recovery night. SWS, particularly stage 4, TST and REM density, were significantly greater following the high load. Implications of these findings for sleep theories and for sleep deprivation research are discussed.
