In this thesis the state instability hypothesis on the homeostatic and circadian influences on cognitive performance is discussed. The state instability hypothesis predicts that performance variability is a function of prior wake and circadian phase, and that this increasing state instability is experienced more as time on task progresses. Two experiments that investigate this hypothesis are discussed in depth: one that takes a sleep deprivation approach and another that uses a forced desynchrony protocol to tackle the state instability hypothesis. The results support parts of the hypothesis, but further experiments are needed to be able to address the state instability hypothesis as a whole.
