A new study from London suggests that late nights can sap children’s brain power.
A group of scientists from University College London investigated the sleep patterns and brain power of more than 11,000 seven-year-olds.
They found that children who stayed up later than 9pm then struggled more with maths and reading tests than those who had gone to sleep at their normal bedtime.
The study also suggests that girls were more affected by the lack of sleep than boys and that the best performed in the test were those who had a good bedtime routine.
