June 11, 2013 - This morning we spoke with Dr. Robert Melillo about a new study which found that putting children to bed at the same time every night could help boost their brain power. A study of more than 10,000 youngsters revealed their cognitive development is affected by inconsistent bedtimes. Authors of the report tested children's abilities to perform certain tasks by testing their reading, math and spatial awareness. They found that 3-year-olds who went to bed at irregular times performed worse than those who were put to bed at the same time throughout the week.
Dr. Robert Melillo is author of the book "Disconnected Kids"; a world- renowned neurologist, professor, and researcher in childhood neurological disorders and co-founder of the Brain Balanced Centers across the USA.
