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.

I am an 18 yr old college freshman. I work every weeknight from 10pm to 7am. Then I go to class from 8am to 3pm. I sleep about six hours a day. My psychology text book says that 4 hrs of sleep is sufficent. Life would be easier if the day was 36 hrs long.
