A regular sleep schedule helps our circadian rhythm stay on track. Even better, going to bed at a regular time could help us maintain a healthy weight; the opposite is also true for those who chronically go to bed late and get few solid hours of sleep.
New findings published in the journal PLOS Computational Biology demonstrate just how important sleep really is. It triggers synapses in our brains that strengthen and weaken, which prompt the forgetting, strengthening or modification of our memories, otherwise known as long-term potentiation (LTP).
Could having a set bedtime schedule help children get to sleep better? New findings published in the journal Sleep show that a positive impact on sleep increases with the consistency of a nightly routine.
