A Third of Americans Are Sleep-Deprived. This Technology Could Help Them Rest Easier
Despite the fact that we spend roughly a third of our lives snoozing (or at least trying to), sleep is not well understood by scientists — to say nothing of the estimated 35% of Americans who don’t get enough of it.

Experiments currently require individuals to come into a hospital or laboratory, cover themselves with an army of electrodes and allow a team of doctors to observe their attempts to drift off. “It’s kind of a nightmare,” says Dr. Emmanuel Mignot, director of the Stanford Center for Sleep Sciences and Medicine. “They...

Is Snoring Dangerous? Here ’s When to Worry
Winston Churchill was a notorious snorer. So, allegedly, was Queen Victoria. They have plenty of company.
