The function of the brain of very late risers and "morning lava" during the working day is different, according to the study.
The researchers examined the night sight brains at bedtime from 02:30 and the waking time 1
Tests conducted from 08:00 to 20:00 found owls
They also had lower attention, slower reactions and increased drowsiness.
The researchers stated that they indicate that night owls suffer from the "limitations" of a typical working day.
They called for additional research to understand the implications for the health of people who work the night at work or in school schedules to which they do not fit.
Fighting Congenital Rhythms
owls or morning lilies (people who went to bed before 23:00 and woke up at 6:30) and researched their brain function at rest by means of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Then the volunteers performed a number of tasks at different times, from 08:00 to 20:00, and they were asked to report the level of their drowsiness
Morning larks were the least sleepy and had the fastest reaction time. early morning tests. They also proved to be much better at this time than owls.
In contrast, night owls were the least sleepy and had the fastest reaction time at 20:00, although at that time they did not do much better than lobsters.
Interconnectedness of the brain in regions that provided better performance and reduced drowsiness was much higher in larks at all times, indicating that the connection of late rebel people has been broken throughout the working day. Healthy, said that the results "may be partly due to the fact that night owls are usually compromised throughout their lives."
Dr. Fazer-Childs said, "Night owls during a school should get older, then they go to work and they have to get up earlier, so they must constantly fight against their preferences and their innate rhythms."
She said there was a "critical need" to better understand how adapting to school and work time that people do not fit can affect health and productivity.
About 40-50% of the population recognize that they have
Dr. Faker-Childs added: "A typical day can last from 9:00 to 17:00, but for night owls it can lead to lower productivity in the morning, lowering the level brain injury in consciousness regions and increasing daytime sleepiness
"If we, as a society, can be more flexible in managing time, we can go a long way to maximizing productivity
] Dr. Faker-Childs emphasized that differences in brain connectivity are not a type of damage and are probably about fake
There are also some limitations for research. looking at the brain function later, and it is possible that other factors that were not taken into account in the study as a lifestyle choice could affect the outcome.
Dr. Alex Nesbitt, a neurologist at a college in London who did not participate in the study, said that the study added to the proof that human brain productivity affects not only the time of day but also their body clock.
"It's becoming increasingly evident that these factors are important when 9-to-5 procedures are widely imposed on people," he added.
The authors of the study called for additional research to look at whether other regions of the brain may be affected, being a dormant or morning lizard.
Their research is published in Sleep magazine.
