Study links short sleep duration to memory impairment in older adults

A longitudinal study of older Chinese adults found that those with a self-reported, habitual short sleep duration of five hours or less had a significantly increased risk of developing memory impairment during a mean follow-up period of four years. The association remained significant after excluding those with poor self-reported health. The results are published in the November issue of SLEEP.
