In this editorial, Czeisler comments on a paper by Van Dongen, Maislin, Mullington, and Dinges. He emphasizes the significance of this study to the field of sleep research, calling it a tour de force and a milestone. He said they "demonstrated unequivocally for the first time that loss of as little as about 2.5 hours of sleep per night (from their calculated average need of 8.16 hours of sleep per night) for two weeks results in a steady deterioration in the ability to sustain vigilance effectively." This finding contradicts the idea in place in the sleep research field in recent decades that individuals could cut back on sleep without sufferering ill effects.
