1) Seven To Eight Hours Of Sleep

This article reports research which suggests that everyone needs 7 to 8 hours of sleep a night. That’s important for the research we look at on circadian and ultradian rhythms.


2) Improving Antidepressant Outcomes

6) Artificial Intelligence Research For Smarter Football Coaching
