Abstract
One theory concerning the function of sleep suggest that it serves a restorative role. Exercise has been found to enhance slow-wave sleep (SWS) and raise heart rate (HR) compared to sleep not following exercise. It has been argued that exercise depletes bodily resources, and these cortical and autonomic changes reflect the need for enhanced restitution during sleep. Prolonged sleep produces similiar findings. The study reported here investigated whether sleep loss or exercise would independently increase HR during recovery sleep, and whether sleep loss plus exercise would have a synergistic effect on HR.
