Sleep and Attention deficit

Data presented today at the Southern Sleep Society annual meeting in New Orleans showed that sleep deprivation in children resulted in cognitive deficits and one hour of sleep deprivation per night for one week resulted in demonstrable changes in brain activity similar to those found in attention deficit disorder. Data from another study showed that children were getting less sleep than their parents estimated and significantly less than historical recommendations.

At Practical Health Strategies, sleep has a central role in our health management and wellness plans.
