Pulling Back The Covers On ‘Strange Science Of Sleep’

Filed by KOSU News in Science.
August 14, 2012

We spend roughly a third of our lives asleep, but know very little about what happens while we slumber.

In his book Dreamland, David Randall, a senior reporter at Reuters, writes that lack of sleep contributes to fatal traffic and airplane crashes, and incidents of friendly fire in the military. His research ranges from crimes committed while sleepwalking, to dream interpretation and sleep deprivation.

He talks with NPR’s Lynn Neary about how sleep has changed as technology has advanced. [Copyright 2012 National Public Radio]
