In today's society where many tasks are tight, people often sacrifice some sleep time too often in exchange for other aspects of life needs. However, researchers believe that reducing the time spent on the pillow side can have a negative impact on memory and learning ability. This research was published in the recent issue of Sleep Medicine Review, a subsidiary of the Dutch Elsevier Publishing Group.
About one-third of a person's life is in sleep, and each person sleeps 5-9 hours a day, an average of 7.5 hours/day. The medical community believes that sleep is an active physiological process of the central nervous system. It is divided into two states according to different parameters of physiological activities, non-rapid eye movement sleep (NREM) and fast eye sleep (REM).
The understanding of REM sleep originated from the sleep laboratory of the University of Chicago, which is the father of modern sleep research. Kateman published an article in the American journal Science in 1953. He found that sleepers have two eyeballs at a certain stage of sleep. Spontaneous paroxysmal rapid reciprocating motion occurs, presuming that sleep is not just a single state.
The researchers analyzed several sleep studies to assess how long people spend REM sleep each night on how well they function and learn.
In response to different types of sleep deficiencies, the team analyzed a comprehensive analysis of the situation of staying up all night and missing an hour or two and found that both sleep stages, REM and NREM, are necessary for learning and memory. Due to the low quality of sleep at night, the increase of daytime sleepiness can seriously affect students' thinking ability and behavioral ability; if sleep is bad or sleep is interrupted, it will cause more or less behavioral disorder, cognitive impairment, academic achievement. Bad conditions such as large and weak learning ability.
For those who lack sleep and have to rely on drinking large doses of caffeine during the day to refresh themselves, the researchers suggest that this decline in learning and behavioral skills can be achieved through healthy lifestyle habits, such as bedtime and The time to wake up is fixed, the time at which the school begins is fixed, and it can be changed by reducing the pressure from the mind and the environment.
Based on this research, for growing adolescents, when parents advise themselves to get a good night's sleep, it's best to follow their advice, because it will not only help you get the best results home, but also Conducive to the growth of memory and effective completion of daily learning and work.
