millions of dollars spent on everything from weight loss plans for truck drivers to studying the dating habits of senior citizens. but first, it's something about which we all know all too well, sleep deprivation. the science behind what really happens to our bodies when we don't get enough sleep. that's coming up next on "world news now." >> announcer: "world news now" continues after this from our

3:20 am
it took a lot of recovery. >> what surprised you most about the whole thing? >> there were a number of things. number one, i think that it was even possible that i could get through this 50 hours but the other thing, and this is really interesting was that i felt as if even during the end of the experiment, as if i was capable of doing certain things. but then when we did like the sobriety test, the cognitive test, it was very clear that i wasn't, i wasn't actually doing these things very well at all. i think that reflects one of the problems with acute sleep deprivation. people get behind the wheel or do something else and they run a risk of hurting themselves. >> they feel as if they're quite fine. sleep is a major issue for many viewers. what sort of advice after coming out of all there do you have for people who have to keep odd hours perhaps because of work? >> most experts say the trick is to keep a schedule, no matter what your shift happens to be, make sure you have a regular sort of schedule that allows

enough sleep and stay disciplined to that. as long as you get hours you need, you're probably going to be okay. once you start cutting into that or making it irregular, that's where you run into problems. with chronic sleep deprivation. >> many of us have been in that situation of tossing, turning, not being able to go to sleep. what's your advice for that? >> well, there are a couple things people can do. one of the things is practicing what's called good sleep hygiene. kind of a funny sounding term. what it means is making sure that the place in which you're sleeping is dark enough and cool enough to let you sleep through the night to make sure to minimize distractions. if you're really running into problems, if you find that you have trouble falling asleep every single night, that's really the time where you need to seek out your doctor's opinion. you need to see a sleep expert
