Discussion: The hypothesis for this experiment was supported as the chronically sleep deprived student maintain executive control after an all nighter and performed well in a memory test. From the results, looking at executive function, all of the test groups showed a decrease in executive function even the non sleep deprived groups. However, the 7-8 hour sleep deprived group had the largest drop in executive functioning. The other three test group showed a drop as well but it was less significant, just a few degrees less functioning than normal the 6 or less sleep deprived group had a much higher level of executive functioning than the 7-8 hour sleep deprived group almost 30 points higher. This exhibits that the normally sleep deprived college students are still able to maintain function after all nighters while the typically non sleep deprived students can’t. The fact that all four group, even the non sleep deprived two showed a drop in executive function could be attributed to the slight difference in the type of stroop test given as the second one could be considered to be more difficult. The test was changed in order
