The average Briton gets six-and-a-half hours' sleep a night, according to the Sleep Council. Michael Mosley took part in an unusual experiment to see if this is enough.

调查显示,英国人平均每天只睡6.5小时。为了验证这样的睡眠是否足够,迈克尔·莫斯利医生参加了一项不寻常的实验。

It has been known for some time that the amount of sleep people get has, on average, declined over the years.

众所周知,近年来,人们的平均睡眠时间有所减少。

We wanted to see what the effect would be of increasing average sleep by just one hour. So we asked seven volunteers, who normally sleep anywhere between six and nine hours, to be studied at the University of Surrey's Sleep Research Centre.

我们想知道,平均睡眠时间仅增加一小时,会产生什么影响。所以我们邀请了7个志愿者,在萨里大学的睡眠研究中心对他们的睡眠时间进行研究。他们通常的睡眠时间为69小时。

The volunteers were randomly allocated(分派) to two groups. One group was asked to sleep for six-and-a-half hours a night, the other got seven-and-a-half hours. After a week the researchers took blood tests and the volunteers were asked to switch sleep patterns. The group that had been sleeping six-and-a-half hours got an extra hour, the other group slept an hour less.

志愿者被随机分成了两组。一组要求每晚睡六个半小时,一组要求睡七个半小时。一周后,研究者做了血液测试,同时让志愿者们转换了睡眠模式。睡六个半小时的一组多睡一小时,另一组少睡一小时。

While we were waiting to see what effect this would have, I went to the John Radcliffe hospital in Oxford to learn more about what actually happens when we sleep.

在我们等待研究结果时,我去了牛津大学的约翰瑞德克里夫医院,了解了更多关于睡觉时实际发生的事情。
