      The Effects of Sleep Deprivation on Brain and Behavior

      Hello Friends......

      Sleep deprivation is a commonplace occurrence in modern culture. Every day there seems to be twice as much work and half as much time to complete it in. This results in either extended periods of wakefulness or a decrease in sleep over an extended period of time. While some people may like to believe that they can train their bodies to not require as much sleep as they once did this belief is false (1). Sleep is needed to regenerate certain parts of the body, especially the brain, so that it may continue to function optimally.

      Thanks

      Yep! Gotta sleep enough.
      Sleep deprivation is only good for one thing - lucid dreaming, because of the REM rebound.
      Although I don't cause sleep deprivation intentionally, just use the already numerous chances that we get nowadays.

      How about giving work to the unemployed and getting the employed to work less?
