    CUHK Research Committee Funding (Direct Grants)

    Sleepiness is a common problem among professional drivers, and its detrimental effect on vigilance and driving performance is well documented. However, this important health problem has not been studied in Hong Kong. The purposes of this study are to (1) examine how the sleepiness level and vigilance performance of taxi drivers vary within one shift and whether these changes are greater among daytime or nighttime drivers, (2) investigate whether matching taxi drivers' shift with their circadian typology (morning vs. evening type) will contribute to better shiftwork adaptation, and (3) determine whether exposure to therapeutic bright light can improve nighttime taxi drivers' sleep quality and quantity, alleviate their sleepiness, and improve their vigilance performance, and whether these changes are greater among morning type or evening type drivers.
