The 25th annual SLEEP conference wraps up today. The three-day gathering featured the latest research on things like insomnia, snoring and napping. One study found that women recover from a loss of sleep better than men. Another looked at why night-owls have the edge in Major League Baseball. And one team presented a night cap that cools the brain and might fix a person's insomnia. Sanden Totten gives us the details on these and other sleep studies.
