Sean McDermott Article 1 Sleep, a healthy diet, and drugs are the three essentials at any university. Stanford University found that 80% of students were qualified as sleep-deprived getting an average of only 6.8 hours of sleep per night. Apparently sleep can make a significant difference in learning and memory. Speed and accuracy on an experimental test improved learning and memory 20 to 30 percent just because of receiving more sleep. Harvard psychology, Matt Walker, finds that memory requires a full eight hours of sleep. A healthy diet seems to be lacking in any college community with fast food on the minds of almost every student. Trans fat found in fast food is shown to have an inflammation of the hippocampus, the part of the brain related to learning and memory, and shows how this decline in memory is somewhat related to the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. Alcohol also has long-term effects on the brain as fewer brain cells are generated. Cigarette

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
