Sleep Deprived Kids -- Science Nation


Research tells us that children in general need to get more sleep, but now new findings indicate that kids from lower-income families suffer more from sleep deprivation than kids in middle- and upper-income families. Auburn University psychologist Mona El-Sheikh wants to know why, so she and her team are studying childrens sleeping patterns and how lack of sleep correlates with the stress factors in the children's lives and their ability to learn.
