Weekend rest not a cure for sleep loss
A recent study shows that chronic sleep deprivation through the weekday cannot be cured with additional sleep on weekends.
Washington (WiredPRNews.com) – Sleeping in on the weekend is not a cure all for chronic sleep loss according to a recent study. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), researchers found that people who experience prolonged sleep deprivation may still feel the effects of it after a night of sleeping for a longer period.
Dr. Daniel Cohen of the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, who was lead researcher on the study, is quoted by the AP as stating, “We know that staying awake 24 hours in a row impairs performance to a level comparable to a blood-alcohol content beyond the legal limit to drive.” Cohen is further quoted as stating of those who attempt to make up for lost sleep time through the week by sleeping in on the weekend, “When exposed to the next all-nighter, they really fall apart much faster than they previously would.”
