Local News

If you work the morning shift you know how tough it is to get enough sleep.

You probably wish you get get more snoozetime.

That’s a serious issue and Kimberly Fenn,  an expert on sleep and an associate professor of psychology and director of the MSU Sleep and Learning lab, stopped in to 6 News This Morning to talk with Jorma Duran about the struggle to get enough sleep.

She just conducted the largest experimentally controlled study on sleep deprivation to date.

One of the things her study explored was the number of  people in critical professions who are sleep-deprived.

Research has found that nearly one-quarter of the people with procedure-heavy jobs have fallen asleep on the job.
