In a recent segment on NPR, the topic of sleep disorders was brought up. How can sleep problems affect more than our attention? How can sleep problems affect our health?
The story follows Michael Arnott, a 67-year-old former marathon runner, described as having a runner’s build.

Arnott’s symptoms, included daytime sleepiness, difficulty concentrating, and falling asleep while driving.
