  • Sleep inertia is known to cause delayed reaction times and general performance deficits immediately after awakening, but specifics manifested in children are not well defined. This research aims to elucidate the effects of sleep inertia in children aged 5 to 12. Results were that younger children sustained slower reaction times than older children at baseline and upon awakening. All age groups had greater impairment after a second awakening, possibly due to a circadian effect and/or cumulative… CONTINUE READING
