Sleep is Overrated Scietists Say
At a press conference held this morning at the Sleep
Research Center at the The National Institutes of
Health in Bethesda, Maryland it was revealed that
for over a decade neurologists have been working on
a project that allows humans to live without the need
to sleep. While working on a program investigating
the underling causes of Attention-deficit hyperactivity
disorder (ADHD), Doctor Roland Jerrome noticed cognitive
function correlations between REM sleep patterns and
He was then able to get a research grant for further
research and formed the "Sleep Research Center"
under the auspices of the National Institutes of Health.
A breakthrough came in 2001 when he implanted a microchip
transducer behind the ear of a rhesus monkey. Probes
from the implant were then routed into the ocular
nerve center in the cerebral cortex and occipital
lobe of the brain. It was then programmed to send
artificial REM sleep signals. Astonishingly it appeared
that the subject did not seem to require sleep and
in fact was quite active during normal sleep periods.
