Published in the journal Sleep, a recent study was analyzed in which 159 adults, at an average age of 30, were given two 10-hour nights, and the other nights were four hours of sleep for five consecutive nights.
Dr David Dinges, chief of the Division of Sleep and Chronobiology at the University of Pennsylvania, said: "The additional hour or two of sleep in the morning after a period of chronic partial sleep loss has genuine benefits for continued recovery of behavioural alertness. "The bottom line is that adequate recovery is important for coping with the effects of chronic sleep restriction on the brain."
