Working Late at Night Reduces Cognitive Abilities

Leadership Instincts

Working late at night can cause decline in cognitive abilities leading to poor attention, slower reaction times and feeling sleepy in the day hours, according to a new research report.

The research report pointed out that 'night owls' face cognitive decline because of the mismatch between the biological time and social time. The functional connectivity of the brain was impacted for those working up late compared to those who worked from 9 am to 5 pm and rose early in the morning. The 'night owls' are also likely to face health risks, depression and higher mortality rates, according to the study.

The findings have some significance for students as well who have the habit of staying up late ahead of examinations. If parents and children have the habit of staying up late, the health and cognitive issues the family members face may have impact on their relationships as well.
