Sleep Deprivation

Back to the fisrt page of this discussion

I'm looking for information to convince my students to sleep. They need scientific proof that sleep will help them in their studies. Many of my high school students only get 4 hours of irregular sleep a day because they stay up at night to study. Could you help me? I am teaching in the rural mountainside of Korea where we don't >have access to library and books -- just the Internet.

Comment 2:

Your psychology textbook is wrong, or you are attributing the lowest level of sleep necessary for restoration as the average, which it is not. Generally, 8 hours a day will keep the doctor away, not to mention reducing your risk for accidents such as car wrecks and such.
