Now there’s a new reason to enjoy a snooze: An afternoon nap can make you smarter. Researchers gave memory tests to 39 adults at noon and then again at 6 p.m. Half took a 90 minute nap between the tests. Those who remained awake performed about 10 percent worse than those who napped. Most people’s ability to learn declines about 10 percent between noon and 6 p.m., but the nappers were able to overcome that decline, discovered researchers at the University of California, Berkeley. “Sleep is not just for the body,” says Dr. Matthew Walker. “It’s very much for the brain.” (National Enquirer)
