On March 7, mattress sale company Online Bed Quilt reacts to an article posted by the Daily Mail, outlining a new study on sleep deprivation that can impact the memory bank of children.
According to Daily Mail, children who get a good night’s sleep are more likely to remember information. In a recent study conducted by researchers from the University of Tuebingen in Germany, children were able to “more effectively convert ‘implicit’ knowledge into ‘explicit’ knowledge, which often happens in learning,” Daily Mail reports.
Researchers from the [University of Tuebingen, according to Daily Mail, found that sleep helped children remember information better.
The researchers trained 28 children and adults to press buttons on a panel and asked them to “explicitly” remember the sequence of button presses. The Daily Mail reported that children performed better on this test because they have slower brain wave activity during sleep. Slow wave activity is associated with the “restoration of mood and the ability to learn, think and remember,” the article said.
Justin Maas, a representative from mattress sale store Online Bed Quilt, said sleep is essential in the regeneration of the brain and cell tissues all over the body. He said sleep helps the body rejuvenate. “A child’s brain is usually very impressionable and the brain grows at a rapid rate during childhood,” he said. “Children need a lot of sleep, so it makes sense that the study found that more sleep boosted memory. It could also be a good way to determine why kids who don’t get enough sleep do poorly in school.”
