In bunker experiments where a subject was cut off from sunlight and social cues for a period of time, the subject stopped following social time and started following their own internal time – leading roenneberrg longer or shorter days. I have way too many check marks in that list.

I just wish this book had a last page of “sleeping best practices.

Social jet lag is a thing and I definitely have it This is an interesting work by an esteemed researcher on the science of sleep.
