The quality of sleep of a child affects his success in school

Children who get enough sleep at night, have a good memory, resulting in improved school performance. A similar opinion was voiced by scientists from the University of tübingen in Germany.

The study answers the question of why children who do not sleep at night, learn poorly. As it turned out, the children during a good night's rest, more efficiently process the received "implicit" knowledge into "explicit". This fact is one of the most important in the learning process.

Under explicit knowledge refers to the amount of information that is stored in the brain, while implicit knowledge is the information that is unconscious man, and which he cannot share with others. If a person is dominated by implicit knowledge, it means that he does something that is clearly not the slightest idea of how to do it. Implicit knowledge have a tendency to turn into explicit and Vice versa. Prior studies science did not know how night sleep on this process.

During the research of German scientists watched 28 children and adults, who have undergone a variety of tests that verifies their explicit and implicit knowledge. In children, these figures were much better, and during sleep the brain children showed less intense medlennovolnova activity than adults. This activity had impact on the quality of the performed tests to assess explicit knowledge.

According to scientists, melanosarcoma activity is important for the development of the capacity for remembering, thinking and learning, and in addition it regulates the mood of the child. Its intensity during infant sleep have a greater effect on learning ability and academic performance than in adults. That is why scientists recommend parents to let them sleep, to improve their ability to learn.
