Just thinking you’re getting good sleep can make your brain run better

A bunch of researchers have found that participants who were told their sleep quality was below average performed significantly worse on brain performance compared to their peers. Included in the study was a verbal fluency test where participants scored way better when told their sleep quality was above average. Looks to be the case that if you can’t get good sleep to begin with, bluffing your way out of it can do good for you.
