Sleep is your life-support system and Mother Nature's best effort yet at immortality, says sleep scientist Matt Walker. In this deep dive into the science of slumber, Walker shares the wonderfully good things that happen when you get sleep -- and the alarmingly bad things that happen when you don't, for both your brain and body. Learn more about sleep's impact on your learning, memory, immune system and even your genetic code -- as well as some helpful tips for getting some shut-eye.

"Sleep is your superpower."
Indeed it is. I've gotten real good at it. I'm so good, I can do it with my eyes closed.

5 years into university. I tend to forget everything, I'm tired all the time, crave sugar all the time, I'm depressed and getting fat, my digestion is crazy.... Listen to this man, people. Value your sleep. Don't let anyone take it away from you.

I finished my Degree in Biotechnology using this method; sleep before studying and sleep after studying. It is truly effective. I never cross-night or use energy drinks. Once I am tired, I sleep, or during study breaks I play a game or watch a series. A brain can be treated as a pet and can be submissive if trained.

Thanks for this informative video Ted.

Really interesting ! Particularly, " first, it's because human beings are the only species that deliberately deprive themselves of sleep for no apparent reason". (17:57)

I also read his book “Why We Sleep” and tried sleeping for 8 hours every day for some time and during my learning process, I was surprised to see that I was doing way better than my “6 hours of sleep days”. Also sleeping less than 8 hours makes depression level increase.

Just solid information well delivered from start to finish.
Excellent job, Professor Matthew Walker!
