  15. 15. Sleep at Night<br />Sara Mednick UCSD<br /> Volunteers to play word games then nap<br /> subjects awoke at NREM REM and Rest (no sleep)<br /> REM sleep, had 40% improvement new gaming<br /> -REM sleep allows free association between ideas <br /> and memories (active time in brain) <br /> REM dreams?<br />
  16. 16. In favor of Naps<br />The restorative effects of naps on perceptual<br /> deterioration – Sara Mednick<br />Subjects tested 4 times in a day instead of <br />given a night to “slow learn” at night<br />Deterioration decreased if nap given between<br /> 2nd and 3rd test<br />
  17. 17. Those opposed….<br />Habitual nap takers do better with post nap<br />Catherine E. Milner: with a nap<br />Habitual Nappers = improved alertness, <br /> motor procedural learning<br />NonHabitualNprs= improved alertness, <br /> procedural deterioration<br />
  18. 18. So what happens after lunch?<br />
  19. 19. Timing is everything!<br />Save the “complex” tasks for<br /> - morning (800am)<br /> - brunch (11:30am)<br />Instigate the stress response<br />- (10:00am)<br /> - (1:00pm)<br />
  20. 20. Stress Response<br />Ear - music<br />Sight – light/sun<br />Smell – aromatherapy<br />Touch – (muscle stretch)<br />Taste - food!<br />
  21. 21. Food choices to help the circadian rhythm<br />Food stimulates gut hormones<br />Mastication (jaw muscle) stimulates saliva<br />Proper timing of gut hormone helps in satiety the remainder of the day into the evening<br />Better sleep at night, more wakeful next day<br />Less crash at post lunch trough<br />
  22. 22. Avoiding the Wall<br />
  23. 23. Glycemic Index<br />
  24. 24.
