When Kevin Morgan stays up late, he uses a tried and tested strategy to survive.

His work area is well lit, he often comes in for a snack in the middle of the night, and takes a 90-minute nap before going to work. It also makes sure that there is enough ground coffee available.

A sleep scientist’s nightmare? Not quite. Ask the scientist.

Is it possible to function well on little sleep?

Morgan is Professor of Psychology and Director of the Clinical Sleep Research Unit at Loughborough University, UK.
