Brain waves predict our risk for insomnia

Interesting study, and I like that they used students. I look forward to seeing more results since stress plays a role in all our lives.

To determine the role of stress, the study examined the sleep cycles of 12 Concordia students as they went through the nerve-racking experience of finals. Measuring students’ brain waves at the beginning of the school semester, Dang-Vu and his team found that students showing a lower amount of a particular pattern of brain waves were more at risk for developing insomnia afterwards in response to the stress of the exams.
