Does coffee help with sleep deprivation?

Lack of sleep can lead to serious negative health consequences. Traditionally, people drink a cup of high-quality coffee to wake up and cheer up.

Scientists and students at Michigan State University's Sleep and Learning Lab conducted a study to determine whether a morning cup of coffee can save you from sleep deprivation. The details were reported by Science Alert.

What is sleep deprivation

Sleep deprivation is a lack or complete absence of satisfaction with the need for sleep. This condition is dangerous because it impairs concentration and leads to impaired thinking processes.

The participants of the experiment were given a very simple task: to watch the computer screen and press a button every time a red circle appeared. People who suffered from sleep deprivation often did not immediately notice the bright red spot on the monitor and did not react to it for some time. The researchers also investigated the effect of wakefulness on more complex thinking processes and the quality of cognitive tasks.
