Sleep and the teenage brain

Brain Pickings relates the science of sleep and the teenage brain in an important post:

“Sleep deprivation will profoundly affect your creativity, your productivity, and your decision-making,”

“There is a tragic disconnect between teens’ circadian givens and our social expectations of them.”

“The impact of sleep-cycle misalignment is [profound] on teenagers, not only academically but also socially, psychologically, and emotionally”

“Allowing children to get additional sleep may help solve the problem of school bullying”

  1. Thank you… this is an excellent article and a simple answer to oh-so-many problems! No surprise for parents but (perhaps) shocking for a teen. Here’s to a good night’s sleep!
