Subjects’ performance of a test of logical thinking improved when sleeping is good!

Conclusions have shown that when bedroom air quality was improved in these experiments:

  • Subjects reported that the bedroom air was fresher.
  • Sleep quality improved.
  • Responses on the Groningen Sleep Quality scale improved.
  • Subjects felt better next day, less sleepy, and more able to concentrate.
  • Subjects’ performance of a test of logical thinking improved.

Read an interesting article by P. Strøm-Tejsen, D. Zukowska, P. Wargocki, and D. P. Wyon published in the Journal of INDOOR AIR, doi:10.1111/ina.12254. The article reports two field intervention experiments on how the effective ventilation rate in bedrooms affects sleep and next day performance.
