Schools across the UK are being invited to take part in research on teens and sleep, as reported by the Irish Examiner.
A hundred schools across the UK are being invited to take part in the research to see if more sleep can help teens get better GCSE grades. The experiment aims to test the theory that restoring natural sleep patterns to 14 to 16-year-olds will improve their academic performance.
Dr Paul Kelley, one of the study leaders from Oxford University’s Sleep and Circadian Institute, expects that it will. He passionately believes that ignoring the body’s internal clock mechanism has led to physical and mental illness and poor quality of life in modern societies around the world.
