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.

Low sleep levels or low melatonin levels would cause early sexual maturity. Sleep is connected with storage of information. You can die if your sleep/dream cycle is blocked. Cancer increases significantly under low sleep situations.

Now consider the opposite. Leonardo DeVinci would sleep 15 minutes every four hours and did this for years and lived to his eighties. The extra time allowed him to be a super genius.
