Reports that 'women have more stamina' look a little weak

However a number of factors might mean this is not necessarily the case: This was undertaken in a laboratory using seated exercise and participants might perform differently when undertaking physical activity normally. Only one muscle was investig...

The Essentiality of Sleep Through the Recovery of Depression
When I think of how important sleep is, I am reminded that sleep deprivation is often used as a form of torture.
