|Title:||The effect of sleep on item recognition and source memory recollection among shift-workers and permanent day-workers||Contributor(s):||Mawdsley, Matthew (author); Grasby, Katrina (author); Talk, Andrew (author)||Publication Date:||2014||Open Access:||Yes||DOI:||10.1111/jsr.12149||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/15786||Abstract:||We studied the effect of sleep versus wakefulness on item recognition and source memory recollection in a sample of shift workers and permanent day-workers. Recognition of words that were previously viewed arrayed in quadrants of a page, and recollection of the original source location of the words on the page were assessed after a 12-h retention interval that was filled with wakefulness incorporating the subjects' work-shift, or an equal period that included sleep. Both shift-workers and permanent day-workers had poorer item recognition and source memory recollection when the retention interval was spent awake rather than including sleep. Shift-workers expressed larger deficits in performance than day-workers after wakefulness. This effect was not mediated by whether the shift-workers were on a day- or night-shift at the time of the study. These results indicate that sleep is an important contributor to successful item recognition and source recollection, and that mnemonic processing in shift-workers may be especially sensitive across their work-shift.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Journal of Sleep Research, 23(5), p. 538-544||Publisher:||Wiley-Blackwell Publishing Ltd||Place of Publication:||United Kingdom||ISSN:||1365-2869||Field of Research (FOR):||170101 Biological Psychology (Neuropsychology, Psychopharmacology, Physiological Psychology)||Socio-Economic Objective (SEO):||970117 Expanding Knowledge in Psychology and Cognitive Sciences||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 313|
