Sleep Findings
Sleeping after learning grows
TWICE as many neural
dendrites as just learning the
material
Sleep deprived children are
unable to process and use
information as well as those
not sleep deprived.

Sleep Patterns for the
Adolescent Brain

• > 50% of high school students in
REM sleep after 3 minutes, should
take 90 minutes to get there -- Brown
U. study
The myelin sheaths surrounding neurons are
not fully developed until early age 25 to 30
Use of artificial
neurotransmitters, i.e.
caffeine, during the first
twelve years may interfere
with the nervous systems
ability to naturally make
them for the rest of a
person’s life!!
