Article of the Week
Unable to make a decision? A quick, power nap can help
Researchers at the University of Bristol in the UK aimed to understand whether a short period of sleep can help us process unconscious information and how this might affect behaviour and reaction time. The researchers measured changes in people's brain activity and responses before and after a nap. Sleep (but not wake) improved processing speed in the masked prime task, suggesting sleep-specific improvements in processing of subconsciously presented primes.
