Brief description Obstructive sleep apnea is recognised as a common condition that has a clearly measurable impact on public health. However it is often difficult for doctors to decide which patients have problems with driving or day to day brain functioning. This study will measure driving and memory during an extended period of waking in patients with sleep apnea. Special markers of brain function will be correlated with performance results during this extended wakefulness challenge.
