#FunFactFriday:A new #study found that like humans, #jellyfish start and end their days with the same #behavior: #sleep. This may not seem surprising--after all, #mammals sleep, as do #invertebrates like worms and fruit flies. Still, the primitive jellyfish observed in this study don't have #brains, providing clues to the #evolution of sleep. Check out the Sleep Review #article below to find out more about this exciting new study and the potential implications of its findings. What did you learn or find most surprising?
