Melbourne: The sleeping patterns of teenagers can provide a clue to their longer-term risk of developing depression or bipolar disorder, say scientists.Erratic sleeping patterns were an often overlooked feature of "basically all mood disorders and all psychiatric disorders``, explained Naomi Rogers of the University of Sydney`s Brain and Mind Research Institute."In people who develop depression, often you can trace back and find they have had early sleep disturbance,`` the Daily Telegraph quoted Rogers, as saying."We know that disturbed sleep occurs in basically all mood disorders and all psychiatric disorders, and the more disturbed sleep patterns are we tend to see worse mood symptoms.
"It`s the whole picture of looking at their social interactions, their sleep wake-cycle and mood ... people tend to forget about the sleep part,```` said Rogers.Sleep was even more important for children during periods of intense study, as research showed more information was retained after a good night`s sleep rather than "cramming`` into the early hours.The findings were discussed at the 22nd Annual Scientific Meeting of the Australasian Sleep Association and Australasian Sleep Technologists Association conference, in Christchurch.
