comment How much sleep is required to restore maximum cognitive functioning?
vote to close: aside from being self-help, this question cannot be answered adequately. 'required' amount of sleep will vary with the individual, and is certainly not a step function. also, what are 'peak levels' of brain functionality? if we broaden the criteria required for an answer, then the question is simply asking for a review of sleep studies on cognition.

Alex I really appreciate your enthusiasm for this site, but I think you should consider putting some more effort into prior research before asking a question here. A search on google scholar for "gait cognition" turns up this article, and several others: apa.org/pubs/journals/releases/neu-202215.pdf

comment Cheapest way to measure arousal levels
I have changed the link to a device that is cheaper, but has a USB connection and monitors GSR, heart rate, and respiration rate. Again, I have not used the device.

comment Cheapest way to measure arousal levels
can you elaborate on why you need to connect it to a computer? the device has a digital readout. writing this down using pen and paper does not make it less accurate.

comment How does a researcher typically go about conducting a survey-based psychological experiment?
this is a valid question, but not suitable for a Q&A format. I would suggest searching amazon.com for a book on 'research methods', or taking a course at your local University. If there is something specific you don't understand in the book, come back and post a new question. As is, this question cannot be adequately answered.
