Abstract : The document is concerned with a theory that man typically cannot perform a vigilance task over extended periods of time without experiencing a decrement in performance, often as rapidly as fifteen minutes after commencing the task. This research was directed toward determining if some of man's physiological functions are correlated with his performance in a vigilance task.
