“Most of our daily lives revolve around the ability to go to bed sometime between 10 and midnight and wake up between 6 and 8 every weekday. But what about people who naturally fall asleep at 3 a.m. and wake up at noon? Are they lazy and unproductive? That’s what many of us are inclined to think, but as it turns out, that’s simply not the case.”
WSU researchers find a ‘sleep gene’
“Washington State University researchers have seen how a particular gene is involved in the quality of sleep experienced by three different animals, including humans. The gene and its function opens a new avenue for scientists exploring how sleep works and why animals need it so badly.”
