        NOVA scienceNOW | Sleepless Surgeons

        Neurologist Jeffrey Ellenbogen is studying how sleep affects the learning and performance of surgical skills. In this video from NOVA scienceNOW, he tries to teach Neil DeGrasse Tyson a new surgical skill. Presumably, if Neil gets enough sleep, he should get better at it. Surgeons work long hours, so if sleep helps them learn and perform better, everyone will rest easier.
