Sleep

Kathriona and DanannWhat happens if you deprive two television presenters of sleep for a day, a night, and a day, make them record all the links for a show, and then put them behind the wheel of a car on a racing circuit?

We find out, as Scope investigates the science of sleep. In the lab – what goes on in your brain while you sleep, and a new example of world-beating Irish technology with a bedside sleep health monitor.

Meanwhile, in Galway, marine biologist Jennifer Doyle gives us a proper introduction to the humble prawn, and singer Greg Ryan tells us about his favourite invention ever: the baked bean.
