A small new study has found that video game-playing teens were able to get a good night's rest as long as they played no more than 60 minutes immediately before bedtime.
A team from Flinders University in Australia found that prolonged video game playing -- around 150 minutes -- right before bedtime caused significant sleep disruption in teenage boys. However, playing 50 minutes or less didn't cut into required snoozing as long as teens were going to bed at their usual time.
