How does sleep loss impact our ability to socialise?

We know that not getting enough sleep can effect the way you think and feel about the world around you. But did you know that it can also change the way you behave? Recent research has revealed that sleep loss makes you more likely to blame others when things go wrong, become impulsive, and less trusting. But what effects can this have on person-to-person social interaction. This is what my research focuses on.

To the right I have added a number of articles that are relevant to my area of research. These focus not only on the emotional changes that happen to people when they don't sleep enough (or have bad quality sleep), but also on the behavioural changes that happen.
