Get some sleep. For my sake!

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?
