Video games have little impact on sleep

15th April 2010

A preliminary study published in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine has suggested that playing a video game before bed appears to have only a mild effect on how long it takes a male teenager to fall asleep.

Those who played a relatively violent video game took only marginally longer to fall asleep than those who watched a relaxing nature documentary. The study used the game Call of Duty 4, which shows soldiers on violent missions, and put it up against March of the Penguins.
