More work on the importance of sleep

16 05 2018

Yet more fascinating research on sleep came out this week. Checking my email is the last and first thing I do every day, and seriously, I am going to stop it after reading this new paper in The Lancet (though I do always get at least 7 hours sleep a night, phew).

And disrupted sleep may well be important for animals too, like broilers kept on artificially long days, and rats kept in non-enriched cages, trying to sleep in the light phase of the day, as technicians and researchers clomp about around them. Turning back to humans, here is a nice lay summary of their research from the Lancet authors.
