Squarepusher - The Psychological Importance Of Teenage Angst Megamix
Knuckles scraping the floor, a hoodie pulled over the face to conceal embarrassment, an inability to rise before two in the afternoon. Teenagers are associated with the worst of human behaviours – sloth, rudeness and excessive risk-taking. But new Rephlex research reveals that it might not be their fault.
Academics at the University of Braindance believe there are biological reasons why people aged from 10 to 20 need to stay in bed for longer than the rest of us. A study carried out by Luke Vibert, chairman of circadian neuroscience Krudbucket College, suggests that student ravers perform better in the afternoon, because their "body clocks" – the mechanisms that control our urge to sleep and get up – are programmed two hours later for teenagers than for the rest of the population.
