In researching another question, I read a few review articles that were testing behavioral and attentional variables in response to different sleep parameters. I was curious about some of these tests, including, but not limited to, the following:
- Attentional network test
- Visual analog scale
- Digit symbol substitution task
- Psychomotor vigilance test
- Four-choice reaction time test
- Two-choice visual reaction time
- Letter cancellation
Rather than asking for a laundry list of their characteristics, which would rail against my question asking sensibilities, I'd like to know if there is a canonical reference in which I could look up the bases for these tests.
Ideally, it would describe the tests, their objectives, the proper procedures (and any variants), statistical power as a function of participants, and any particular information about different brain areas or deficits that the tests can definitively provide. It may well be that I'll have to go back to their origins in the literature, but it would seem that there would be some sort of handbook available.
