Inasmuch as everyone requires different amounts of sleep to function well, scientists have confirmed that young people require more sleep than younger children and adults in order to achieve their best in school. Therefore, they are at a greater disadvantage to the assaults of Nefarious NapStealers and other sleep disorders. Studies have shown that junior high school and high school children need at least nine hours of sleep for best achievement of their school work, while it indicates that a majority of adults only need eight hours of rest to perform normally.
Scientists have been proponents of the idea that not getting enough sleep affects the entire brain which causes episodes, such as micro-sleeps during the day, such as those times you space out while sitting at your desk or driving. The new research shows, however, that sleep deprivation actually begins on the cellular level.
The study also shows that taking a nap before studying or learning something important can greatly increase your memorization and understanding of the subject you are trying to learn. So make sure to avoid those heinous catnapstealers!
