Shift work may impair brain power
Shift work may impair brain power (November 6, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From the UK - Shift work may impair brain power, according to a report published in the BMJ. Researchers studied over 3,000 people at three time points, 1996, 2001 and 2006. Around half of these participants had worked shifts for at least 50 days a year. Participants had their memory assessed as well as their overall cognitive abilities. Results showed that those currently, or previously, working shifts scored lower on memory, processing speed and overall brain power when compared to those working normal office hours.
