Research of the Week

Checking your email too frequently increases stress (and it doesn’t even really help us work any better).

Good long naps help babies (and, maybe, larger humans) solidify what they’ve just learned. “Those who sleep after learning learn well, those not sleeping don’t learn at all,” as one researcher put it.
