Researchers Identify Potential Target to Improve Sleep in Children

Arizona State University (ASU)

Sleep deprivation in children can lead to behavioral and mood problems that can negatively affect school performance, social interactions and physical wellbeing. Children from lower-middle-class families or families who live at or near the poverty line get less sleep and lower quality sleep than their peers from families with more income and resources. In a study that will be published in the Journal of Youth and Adolescence, researchers in the Arizona State University Department of Psychology have uncovered a potential mechanism that explains why children living in lower socioeconomic situations experience less and poorer sleep than their wealthier counterparts. The study is currently available online.
