Scientists found that brain age was not significantly changed among the acute or chronic groups.

They said: “By contrast, brain age was not significantly changed by either acute (three hours’ time in bed for one night) or chronic partial sleep restriction (five hours’ time in bed for five continuous nights).

The study concluded: “Sleep is fundamental for humans to maintain normal physical and psychological functions.
