This study text is about those who wake up early (morning larks) and those who wake up late (night owls). Let’s have a look at some characteristic features of these two different types.
NIGHT OWLS AND MORNING LARKS
A new study says that the brains of those who get up1 late (“night owls”), and those who wake up2 early („morning larks„), are different during3 the day.
Scientists check4 the brains of those who go to bed at 2:30 a.m., and wake up at 10:15 a.m. Then they test the brain activity of the people who go to bed just before 11 p.m. and wake up at 6:30 a.m.
Morning larks are not sleepy5 and react quickly early in the morning. However6, night owls are not sleepy and have fast reactions at 8 p.m.
Researcher7 Dr Facer Childs says: „If night owls get up early and then they go to school or work, they must fight against their natural rhythms.”
The authors of the study need to do more tests. They want to know if the brains of night owls and morning larks are different also in other ways.
