SCIENTISTS are going to carry out a study to see how coronavirus and the lockdown are affecting people’s sleep.
During lockdown lots of people have revealed that they’re struggling to sleep and are having vivid dreams.
So, an international group of researchers, led by Professor Colin Espie from the Nuffield department of Clinical Neurosciences at the University of Oxford, will investigate.
Sleep is really important, because it’s essential for tissue repair, cell regeneration, your immune system and your memory. It helps keep your emotions in check, too.
When you don’t get enough sleep you can feel as though you don’t have much energy, are really tired, can’t concentrate as much or remember things, and it can affect your mood. The study is going to look at how concerns about the coronavirus pandemic might affect our sleep.
