OU [Open University, UK] research highlights impact of early lectures on college and university students

April 11, 2017

Research by the OU and the University of Nevada has discovered that productivity in students is much greater between the hours of 11:00am and 9:30pm than at other times of day.

The study of 190 undergraduate students, which was published in the journal Frontiers in Human Neuroscience, analysed individual study patterns to determine when cognitive ability is expected to be at its peak. The study also focused on the preferred sleeping times of the participants and asked them to rate their ability to complete cognitive activities every hour over a 24 hour period.
