By Mark A. Sherman,Molly H. Brown,Mark A. Silverstein and Daniel J. Stoll,The Washington PostThe Washington and Lee University Sleep Studies Center recently published an article that outlines the research and findings behind one of the most popular sleep-related sleep myths: that the amount of time spent sleeping is associated with better cognitive function and mood.
While the article focuses on the sleep-wake cycle, the study is also a call to action for people who are interested in improving their sleep.
It is estimated that as many as 5 percent of adults have a sleep disorder.
The National Sleep Foundation says that about one in four adults is affected by a sleep problem.
While this can be a stressful time for a loved one, it can also be a source of inspiration for sleep researchers and educators.
Here are a few things you should know about the research behind the myth:Myth #1: Sleep time is related to a person’s cognitive function.
It is true that some people sleep longer than others.
The research shows that people with a sleep pattern associated with poorer cognitive function have lower levels of melatonin, a hormone produced by the pineal gland that plays a role in sleep.
The hormone helps regulate the sleep cycle.
However, sleep-deprived people tend to have lower melatonin levels and are more likely to sleep poorly, which can result in sleepiness, fatigue and lower cognitive performance.
Myth #2: Sleeping for extended periods is bad for your brain.
This is a myth.
According to the National Sleep Center, people who sleep for longer periods have more oxygen in their blood, which helps the brain function.
This means they are able to perform better in school, work, social interactions and other everyday activities.
The sleep study is part of the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine’s (NCCAM) research to develop new sleep interventions that can help people with sleep disorders.
It has been shown to help people sleep better at night and improve their sleep efficiency.
Myth @3: Sleep is bad when you have a problem sleeping.
There is no correlation between sleep and quality of life.
While some people who have sleep disorders experience better cognitive performance and higher levels of cortisol, there is no link between sleep problems and poorer quality of sleep.
The National Sleep Study of Adults and Children (NSS-A) and the National Institutes of Health’s Sleep Disorders Program are the two leading sources of scientific evidence on the health effects of sleep problems.
The study has also shown that those with sleep problems tend to exhibit worse quality of daily life, such as poor concentration and concentration problems, anxiety and depression, poor sleep quality and sleep disturbances.
Myth: Sleep can lead to mental health problems.
Some of the sleep research on sleep has found that people who suffer from sleep problems are more at risk for developing mental health conditions.
Some sleep problems have been associated with depression and anxiety.
Sleep problems can also increase risk for certain cancers, including breast, colorectal, thyroid, and kidney.
Myth 2: Sleep will improve your memory.
There’s no scientific evidence that sleep will improve memory.
While there is some evidence that some sleep-promoting drugs may improve memory, the research shows no benefit.
The research is based on self-reports, and it has shown that individuals with sleep issues tend to report worse memory scores, which means they may have fewer short-term memory benefits, or may be more prone to problems with short- and long-term memories.
In other words, there are no evidence that prolonged periods of sleep will help your memory or improve your cognitive function, even when the sleep pattern is associated to improved sleep.
Myth 3: Sleep improves the brain.
Some research shows a link between increased sleep and improved cognitive performance in people with certain disorders.
This suggests that if you suffer from a sleep-disordered condition, sleep may improve your ability to learn, remember and perform.
However, the link between improved sleep and memory is complex.
Many sleep studies have found that sleep is associated not with improved cognitive function but rather with decreased memory and memory dysfunction.
This makes sense since the brain is highly sensitive to stress and stress-related hormones, including cortisol, which is produced by cortisol-sensitive tissues of the adrenal gland.
Cortisol is released when a person is under stress and is one of its key stress-reversing factors.
Sleep studies also have shown that a combination of high levels of cognitive functioning and sleep may lead to better overall functioning.
For example, people with mild cognitive impairment, such a mild Alzheimer’s disease, have higher levels than the general population.
In other words: people with cognitive impairments have lower sleep levels, which might have an effect on the overall health of the brain and may improve cognitive function in general.
The NCCAM has also found that the longer a person has been awake, the less likely they are to develop sleep disorders and the less
