Much has been said and studied in the world of sleep science throughout the decades.

News agencies nationwide use stories of sleep as space fillers on slow news days all the time.  Now a more reputable source, PBS’ NOVA takes a deeper dive into the science of sleep in a new episode scheduled for release Tuesday on DVD.  The episode, Mysteries of Sleep, examines the benefits of good sleep and consequences of not so good sleep.

Additionally, it presents research on how something, such as pink noise, can possibly have a positive impact on sleep, and how sleep impacts children’s ability to learn.

NOVAMysteries of Sleep has a run time of one hour.  It will retail for MSRP of $24.99, but can be pre-ordered at a reduced price of $19.99 through PBS’ online store.  More information on this and other episodes of NOVA is available at:
