The severity of narcolepsy is commonly measured with the Multiple Sleep Latency Test (MSLT), focusing on the tendency to fall asleep. A neglected but perhaps equally important complaint is impaired performance in the waking state. We evaluated the Sustained Attention to Response Task (SART) for the quantification of vigilance in narcolepsy.
