In the previous post on this topic, the facts that I wrote is a common mis-conception. After going through the article on Sleep, the following are the facts that I learned...
"Sleep isn't just a form of rest! Sleep plays a critical physiological function, and is indispensable for your intellectual development! Those who do not respect their sleep are not likely to live to their full mental potential!"
"During sleep, the brain works as hard as during SAT or GRE exams"
These facts really shatters the common misconception that every individual has on Sleep.
p.s: The article has lot of references to other contradictory research articles. The facts stated in the article is not scientifically proved. So take this article and its facts on face value.
