New research finds that while college students are usually more sleep deprived than other people, they also easily ignore the benefits of sleep, KRCU reports.
Dr. Adam Knowlden, assistant professor in UA’s department of Health Science, co-authored an article that will be published in an upcoming issue of Family & Community Health. He conducted the study with Dr. Manoj Sharma, a researcher formerly in the health promotion and education program at the University of Cincinnati. They gathered their data in 2012 by surveying a sample of 188 students attending the University of Cincinnati.
The study looked at the factors contributing to college students getting enough sleep and what are the factors that do not contribute to it.
