While you were sleeping*

Nature, a science journal, has published a free supplement on sleep that includes a bunch of articles with promising titles (e.g.,Insights from studying human sleep disorders,” “Sleep is of the brain, by the brain and for the brain” and “Sleep-dependent memory consolidation“), but none appear to offer strategies for beating sleeplessness. David Pescovitz of Boing Boing speculates that reading the issue itself could do the trick. I hope so, because I’ll be one neurotic insomniac if I plow through six articles about the importance of sleep and still can’t manage it.

* As a fellow soporific-immune blogger would say.
