LAURA KNIGHT-JADCZYK AND JOE QUINN
Since the 9/11 attacks, no book has provided a satisfactory answer as to WHY the attacks occurred and who was ultimately responsible for carrying them out - until now.
"Doctors on call, who may receive several phone calls a night, also experience disruptions.Each time they had to complete a computer task that took 10-15 minutes before they went back to bed.
These night wakings could be relatively short - only five to ten minutes - but they disrupt the natural sleep rhythm.
The impact of such night wakings on an individual's daytime alertness, mood, and cognitive abilities had never been studied.
Our study is the first to demonstrate seriously deleterious cognitive and emotional effects."In their study participants were awakened four times during a normal 8-hour night (Kahn et al., 2014).
