sleep studies

There's a lot of information around about what happens when humans sleep, from rapid eye movements (REM) to dreaming. But the research involving the electrophysiological characteristics of sleep has mostly been limited to mammals and invertebrates.
Delving into the biology behind it all, to include brain perception as it relates to metabolic disorders -- as this study did -- further reinforces the importance of continually educating ourselves about this essential topic.

Dr. William C. Dement, a professor at the Stanford Center for Sleep Sciences and Medicine, is considered the father of sleep medicine. In answer to my questions, he spoke about his early interest in sleep studies, the scientists who inspired him and how the study of sleep has evolved over half a century. Here is a transcript of our conversation.

You've likely heard some of these core benefits before, but more recent studies have further explored the value of rest, providing some interesting insights.
If we want people to make carefully-considered moral choices, and if we want them to spot unethical behavior in others, then sleep needs to be a priority.
People in Melbourne sleep the most, people in Tokyo sleep the least, and Americans just need more sleep overall. Those are
You've heard it before, probably from your mom: Make sure you get enough sleep. But if you need a more scientific justification

What you may not realize is that your child is not lazy at all. In most cases your teen is just not getting enough sleep. Now, schools across America are recognizing this and starting to take action accordingly.

How can you be sure to get enough beauty rest? As a self-confessed over-achiever ever in search of a better night's sleep, I've found the following to make a difference.
A diagnostic sleep study, also known as a polysomnogram (PSG), is a technique used to identify the presence of sleep disorders. At its core, a PSG simply involves connecting a patient to monitoring equipment and recording his or her sleep for a night.
There is now good evidence that parts of the brain may be awake while other parts are asleep. Sleepwalking is a premiere example: The portion of the brain capable of generating complex behaviors is awake while those portions which normally monitor our activity and lay down memory of our behaviors are asleep.
