Sleeping > Studying (...to some extent)

Good morning all! I hope your studying is going well - I thought that this article was particularly relevant to finals week. In brief, sleep is highly beneficial, possibly essential, for remembering things. You probably already know this - but seriously take it into consideration. Don't underestimate sleep, especially REM sleep. (If you're curious about the complex electrical signaling which causes sleep to help you remember things, the article is "Sleep to Remember" (Born, Rasch, and Gais 2006), which can be found here: http://nro.sagepub.com.proxy.library.ucsb.edu:2048/content/12/5/410.full.pdf+html)
