Teen-zombie syndrome in WSJ

October 17, 2012

In Wall Street Journal today “Understanding the Zombie Teen’s Body Clock” by Sue Shellenbarger:

The groggy, sleep-deprived teenager stumbles through breakfast and falls asleep over afternoon homework, only to spring to life, wide-eyed and alert, at 10 p.m

sleep loss can hamper neuron growth in the brain during adolescence, a critical period for cognitive development.

there are still no clear solutions for the teen-zombie syndrome.
