Today's Penn Current featured a trio of familiar names, as a study on the effects of Daylight Savings Time changes by Criminology doctoral student Rebecca Umbach, with the guidance of Criminology faculty Adrian Raine and Greg Ridgeway, was featured. Rebecca set out to measure the effects of Daylight Savings Time-related short-term sleep deprivation on aggressive behavior in people the Monday following DST. The results were not what they expected. For more on the study, please read their article in Penn Current or for the full results, see the Journal of Experimental Criminology
