Women need more sleep than men, is it right?
Women need more sleep than men because their brains are more "complex". This conclusion is obtained based on research conducted by researchers from Loughborough University.
The researchers found that women need to sleep 20 minutes longer than men. The cause is assumed female brains work harder during the day than men. As reported by independent, this study involved about 210 people (male and female).
One of the primary functions of sleep is to allow the brain to recover and repair themselves. According to the researchers, during deep sleep, the part of the brain responsible for memory, reasoning, and language is released from the senses and enter the recovery mode.
The researcher also explained that the amount of sleep required by the complexity and intensity of brain activity during the daytime. They also explained that the more heavily used during the day, the more sleep you need.
Women tend to do a lot of activities flexibly. It also makes their use more brain. So they need more rest.
