Gaming Before Bed Negatively Impacts Teens' Sleep

A new study on the effects of teens playing video games before bed time...*flips coin* bad. No need to worry, just wait a month, another study will find that video games make you sleep like a baby.

Flinders University child sleep psychologist Dr Michael Gradisar, who supervised the study, said there was a 27-minute loss in total sleep time after 150 minutes of gaming based on the polysomnography tests and a 39-minute delay in sleep onset according to the participants' sleep diaries.
