As fatigue increased, subjects became more conservative in their response bias and their perceptual certainty declined. This study is the first to show that changes in cognitive fatigue are correlated with changes in perceptual certainty. Dr. Wylie: "Our work demonstrates the relevance of signal detection theory measures in the understanding of fatigue and provides researchers with a new set of tools with which to better understand the nature and consequences of cognitive fatigue."
Among the nation's largest providers of monoclonal antibodies for Covid-19, Houston Methodist has infused nearly 4,000 patients.
