Takeaway

  • Neurobiological consequences for experimental sleep deprivation results should not be considered a stand in for habitual short sleep duration, which does not have a similar association with activation in the human neurobiological reward circuit.

Why this matters

  • Our understanding of neural reward processing is based on total sleep deprivation studies rather than habitual short sleep (considered a public health epidemic affecting approximately 1/3 of adults) which may not have similar reward processing brain activation patterns.
