This week the city of Vancouver was the host for a conference on Alzheimer’s. I saw a few of the conference delegates walking downtown in the evenings. One of the reports presented during the conference stated the perfect amount of sleep, as it pertains to cognitive function, was seven hours. Any less or any more, led to a decline in cognitive abilities.

If this is indeed the case, I’m going to be screwed later in life because I often get less than seven hours of sleep. I sometimes get about seven hours on the weekend but I’ve read that you can’t make up sleep debt like you can with a monetary debt. I really should try harder to get more rest during the week day. Let me start by ending this post here. Get to bed early tonight folks!
