  • Don't lose sleep over sharing your bed with your pet or kids
    About half of all pet owners share their beds or bedrooms with their pets. Studies about co-sleeping are limited to the bedtime arrangements of adults, or parents and their children.

These concerns should be set aside because both practices have their benefits, says the lead author of a new study.

Researchers have now discovered that humans have a much better memory to recognize and remember sequential information.
