Abstract

"In two experiments, sleep loss and electroconvulsive shock were found to produce a common effect: a restriction in the range of past events upon which S bases a response in a two-choice task. The results underline the usefulness of sequential analysis of responses for measuring changes in problem solving behavior." (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved).
