  • HEY THERE! WELCOME TO LIFE NOGGIN!

  • BLOCKO: We've talked before about the importance of sleep and just how much you should try

  • and get every night, but we haven't seen what it would be like if you didn't sleep

  • at all.

  • Obviously please don't try this.

  • It's just hypothetical.

  • james: AHHH!

  • Blocko: ...uh

  • James: Where am I and why am i so pointy!?

  • Blocko: Animator, why does he get a face!?

  • James: Hey, aren't you Block Man from...uh...Life Nugget.

  • Blocko: Close enough. I guess.

  • Who are you?

  • James: I'm James from TheOdd1sOut

  • Blocko: Oh yeah!

  • I know you!

  • You're normally a lot rounder.

  • James: But now i'm looking sharp!

  • Both: AYYYY!

  • Blocko: So, i don't know if you're busy after crashing through a giant portal in the sky,

  • but do you wanna help me with this video?

  • James: Sure! What's it about?

  • Blocko: Oh, it's on what would happen if you didn't sleep for a week!

  • James: Oh yeah i can definitely help with this one.

  • So, going without sleep for a week does sound like a long time, but you wouldn't win any

  • awards for doing it.

  • There has actually been an extensively documented case.

  • Someone stayed awake for about 11 days, or nearly 265 hours.

  • This came from Randy Garner, a high school student in San Diego, California.

  • There have been other reports since then of people staying awake even longer, but Garner

  • gave a well-recorded history on the upper limits of the human body.

  • He did it as part of an experiment for his science fair, breaking Tom Rounds' previous

  • record of 260 hours.

  • All that for a science fair?

  • I would have just stuck with the baking soda volcano

  • ...or ya know, literally anything else!

  • Blocko: But what might happen to /you/ if you stayed up for a week?

  • After your first night awake, you might get lost in your video games until the sun surprises

  • you through your window.

  • This is because even 24 hours without sleep can lead to an altered sense of time and a

  • sensitivity to light and brightness.

  • As you progress into your sleepless week, you'll most likely notice your emotions

  • going a bit wonky.

  • You may not feel as positive and be easily irritated or disappointed.

  • You could also experience memory issues and have trouble staying alert.

  • Losing sleep can also weaken the body's ability to fend off illnesses.

  • You shouldn't be operating any machinery either because your chances of getting into

  • an accident are heavily increased.

  • Some have even said staying up for extended periods of time have caused them to have hallucinations,

  • but there's still a bit of skepticism on this.

  • Oh that's not a hallucination.

  • Sometimes that just happens.

  • James: Beyond, ya know, just choosing to do so, there's also medical conditions that make it difficult

  • for people to get to sleep, and they can be pretty serious.

  • One of these is called exploding head syndrome.

  • It's not actually as cool as it sounds., It's so much worse.

  • It's where a person experiences extremely loud noises, like an explosion or a booming

  • thunderclap, as they're drifting off to sleep or waking up.

  • People dealing with high levels of stress and mental or physical fatigue seem to be

  • more likely to have exploding head syndrome.

  • It can truly be terrifying and really interfere with their sleep.

  • Exploding heads, Good for cartoons….not for people.

  • Blocko: Another condition is called fatal familial insomnia, where patients have symptoms such

  • as progressive insomnia, weight loss, extreme body temperatures, and rapidly progressing

  • dementia.

  • There's currently no effective treatment or cure for it, and death typically occurs

  • within 12-18 months of a person's first symptoms.

  • But that doesn't mean we're not trying to learn more about it.

  • A recent study of 5 patients used SPECT and PET scans to reveal that basal ganglia and

  • the cerebral cortex were also affected by fatal familial insomnia.

  • This is important because, based off of a previous study, it was found that basal ganglia

  • are important in regulating sleep-wake behaviors.

  • Hopefully, with further research, we can better learn how to care for this dangerous disease

  • and one day find a cure.

  • James: Serious conditions aside, sleep deprivation doesn't seem to always be a bad thing though.

  • Not encouraging staying up all night and playing video games though.

  • Based on a recent study, sleep deprivation might be an effective antidepressant, as it

  • rapidly reduced symptoms of depression in roughly half of the depression patients in

  • the analysis.

  • Their results are really quite interesting.

  • But all in all, I'd say that sleep is pretty darn important and you should try your best

  • to keep that brain of yours well-rested, at least in most cases.

  • Sometimes you just gotta stay up and finish that youtube video.

  • Blocko: Rather than trying to see how long you can stay awake, it would be way cooler if we tried

  • to beat the world record for the largest sleepover party.

  • It's only 2,004 people!

  • If more people fall through that giant portal thing then we can probably beat that record.

  • Actually never mind.

  • Let's get out of here.

  • Why!? It looks so friendly!

  • Who's a good fish monster!?

  • So how long have you stayed up for? Let me know in the comment section below!

  • Thank you so much to James from theodd1sout for helping me with this video!

  • He's incredibly talented and makes amazing animated stories over on his channel.

  • Go check him out and subscribe!

  • As always, I'm Blocko and this has been Life Noggin.

  • Don't forget to keep on thinking!

HEY THERE! WELCOME TO LIFE NOGGIN!
