The researchers are from Birmingham's Centre for Human Brain Health in the U.K. Their research that people who slept and early (early birds) an advantage over people who slept and woke up late (night owls). There differences in the brain function of early birds and night owls.

The scientists 38 people in their research. The people questionnaires about their sleeping pattern and when they tired during the day. They were then into an early bird or night owl group based on their answers. All of the people had MRI scans on their brain and different tests throughout the day. The early birds said they felt less sleepy and were able to the tests quicker than the night owls. The researchers said there were big differences between the two groups.
