Get some sleep. For my sake!

Posted by Ron Coleman on June 23, 2008

No surprise here:  “Sleep deprivation disconnects the emotional brain”:

Disturbed sleep patterns feature in a range of psychiatric disorders, many of which fall under the DSM’s mood disorder category. A recent paper by Yoo et al (2007) suggests that sleep deprivation itself can produce abnormal affective processing. In other words, sleep disturbances may be a cause as well as a symptom in conditions such as depression.

Thank Yoo very much, but anyone who’s lived in the world much knows this, right?

Good night.
