Housecall for Health: Napping Boosts Memory

A little shut-eye might help to boost your memory.

FOX’s Colleen Cappon has more in today’s edition of Housecall For Health:

Audio clip:

Scientists say a cat-nap has a lot more health benefits than just peace and quiet. It can actually help boost your memory.

Research out of Scotland shows that after learning something new, just ten minutes of shut-eye can seal that information into the brain.

Researchers suspect that the time allows the brain to process the recent memory into a long-term memory. Without it, a person is much more likely to forget the information.
