The Superior Sleep of Healthy Elderly Nuns.
Hoch, Carolyn C.; And Others
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v25 n1 p1-9 1987
Compared nocturnal sleep structure of 10 healthy elderly nuns to that of 10 healthy age-matched female controls. The nuns fell asleep more quickly and had less early morning awakening, as well as greater rapid eye movement sleep time. These differences may reflect the more highly entrained life style of the nuns, including modest habitual sleep restriction. (Author)
