Behavior is what people do and say—it is a means to an Size: 1MB. Auditory vigilance performance improved as body temperature rose, whereas addition performance improved when body temperature was increased to °C but worsened when body temperature was increased to °C.

These results suggest that different types of brain function may have different zones of thermal sensitivity with respect to by: Vigilance is a term with varied definitions but the most common usage is sustained attention or tonic alertness.

This usage of vigilance implies both the degree of arousal on the sleep–wake axis and the level of cognitive performance. There are many interacting neural and neurotransmitter systems Cited by: Vigilance tasks are however one area where it may be wise not to take the principle too literally.
