***Link to my work in progress with scratch audio: ************************* Title: Just how important is sleep?
Shot 1: For an experiment at UC Berkeley, Dr. Matthew P. Walker put students in two groups.
Shot 2: One group stayed awake for 36 hours, the other slept normally.
Shot 3: He then gave everyone a list of words to remember. Some had emotionally negative connotations, some had positive connotations and the rest were neutral.
Shot 4: After 2 nights of sleep the students were tested to see which words they remembered.
Shot 5: Dr. Walker made three key findings...
Shot 6: One. On average, those who didn’t sleep, scored 40% lower than those who did.
Shot 7: In other words, sleeping promotes better memory.
Shot 8: Two. The second finding was a bit more interesting: Both groups remembered positive and negative words better than neutral words.
Shot 9: Emotion, it seems, facilitates the creation of memories!
Shot 10: Three. Looking a little closer at the data revealed a third finding.
Shot 11: Those who had slept, recalled positive and negative words more or less evenly.
Shot 12: Things were different for the sleep deprived subjects. They remembered 81 percent of the negative words...
Shot 13: and only 41 percent of the positive words.
Shot 14: People who are sleep deprived literally see the world in a more negative, difficult way.
Shot 15: What’s going on here?
Shot 16: Generally speaking, negative stimuli get processed by the amygdala...
Shot 17: ...and positive or neutral memories get processed by the hippocampus.
Shot 18: Sleep deprivation hits the hippocampus harder than the amygdala.
Shot 19: Resulting in a failure to remember pleasant things—
Shot 20: —while remembering gloomy stuff just fine.
Shot 21: Lack of sleep also increases the chances of developing clinical depression.
Shot 22: Adults need 7 1/2 to 8 hours of sleep every night in order to keep a balanced perspective on life. Teenagers need about 9 hours.
