Harvard study finds sleep, napping important for learning and memory

In case there's a shiftworker who needs another reason to get some more sleep ...

an article in the February 1, 2008 issue of the journal Sleep says "Sleep appears to have an impact on what is learned well, but not so much when one is not motivated to learn," according to lead researcher Matthew Tucker, a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Sleep and Cognition at Harvard Medical School (Boston, Massachusetts, USA). Mr. Tucker believes sleep, even a nap can help improve memory and learning.

So, sleep well.
