A new study reveals a link between religious attendance and better sleep quality. Researchers say religiosity could decrease some psychological distress, substance abuse and stress exposure, all of which are associated with sleep outcomes.
Researchers look at how sleep deprivation can impact cognition, information processing and memory. A new study reveals sleep deprived mice can demonstrate sleep like brain activity while awake.
Researchers at Northwestern University report older adults who suffer from sleep disturbances such as sleep apnea and restless leg syndrome might enjoy a better night's sleep by cultivating a purpose in life.
