I am frequently amazed at the type of research carried out, particularly in the area of human behaviour.
New findings published in the journal, Nature Communications apparently shed light on the growing ‘loneliness epidemic’. ‘In sleep deprived brains, researchers found heightened neural activity typically associated with people who feel their personal space is being invaded. The less sleep you get the less you want to socially interact’ says Professor Walker ‘it’s the viral contagion of social isolation’.
It would appear that the academic and his team have incontrovertible evidence that people who don’t get much sleep don’t want other people around them and if they continue on this cycle they will become lonely.
Or in layman’s terms, if you’re always tired and grumpy you will eventually lose your friends
Money well spent, don’t you think?
