Some Sleep More Efficiently Than Others — Here’s Why
In this animal trial, the researchers found that the mice with FNSS still enjoyed the neuroprotective benefits of sleep. In other words, less quantity of sleep doesn’t necessarily mean less quality—according to this research, at least.
As neurologist and co-senior author of the study Louis Ptacek, M.D., notes in a news release, “Our work to date confirms that the amount of sleep people need differs based on genetics,” noting, “Think of it as analogous to height. There’s no perfect amount of height; each person is different.”
