Do naps make you feel even more tired or depressed? Have you ever struggled through a nearly sleepless night only to find yourself surprisingly alert or even euphoric in the morning? Most people need plenty of sleep to function properly during the day, and if they lose too much, they can suffer chronic illness, fatigue and anxiety. But for others, there is a paradox. Too much sleep depresses them, and a simple night of sleeplessness can make them feel better at once.

December 4, 1994 | Michael D'Antonio, Michael D'Antonio is writing a book about the status of America's children for Crown Publishers. His last article for the magazine was "Scars and Secrets: the Atomic Trail," about the legacy of the atomic weapons complex
With straight brown hair, blue eyes and a broad smile, Ryan Arnold had always been able to clunk into a room wearing huge sneakers and a floppy T-shirt and charm almost anyone. But last year when he turned 12, his temperament shifted. His grades plummeted, he started smoking and he took long bike trips along the railroad tracks, past the old factories and warehouses in Martinez, a small town near Walnut Creek. Patricia Arnold, who had chosen to rear him alone, was shocked.

It's one of the greatest stories ever told: A baby is found in a basket adrift in the Egyptian Nile and is adopted into the pharaoh's household. He grows up as Moses, rediscovers his roots and leads his enslaved Israelite brethren to freedom after God sends down 10 plagues against Egypt and parts the Red Sea to allow them to escape. They wander for 40 years in the wilderness and, under the leadership of Joshua, conquer the land of Canaan to enter their promised land.

Roger W. Sperry, a retired Caltech professor of psychobiology who shared the Nobel Prize in medicine and physiology for his split-brain research establishing the separate functions of the "left brain" and "right brain," has died. He was 80. The scientist, who taught at Caltech from 1954 until his retirement in 1984, died Sunday in Pasadena, Caltech officials announced Monday. Sperry received half of the 1981 prize for his studies of brain function over 40 years.
