The world of sleep research is one which never, well, sleeps. Here are just a few of the sleep-related things I’ve noticed recently :
- 40 facts about sleep you probably didn’t know
(Or were too tired to think about)
- Sleep lowers blood pressure
Cites an interesting study in the August 2 edition of the journal Sleep.
- Mercedes develops fatigue detection
Falling asleep at the wheel and waking up just prior to a head-on collision isn’t fun (it really wasn’t). Hopefully that’s a thing of the past.
If all this talk of sleep has made you keen to dig a little deeper into the strange worlds of polyphasic and biphasic sleep (reportedly used successfully by both bodybuilders and powerlifters), consider the Uberman and Steve Pavlina forums (particularly Health and Fitness). Some great information on each of them.
