Study or Sleep? Staying Up Late Could Be Counterproductive
KANSAS CITY, Mo — There aren’t enough hours in the day for teens. Now that school is underway, many are sacrificing sleep to do homework.
FOX 4 Medical Reporter Meryl Lin McKean says new research from UCLA finds that’s not smart. High school students who stayed up late to study performed worse on tests the next day. They also had less comprehension during class.
The research is published in the journal Child Development.
