A physician called because he heard a news story describing a study that
demonstrated loss of sleep caused loss of IQ points.  The phycician said that
it is a JAMA story, but we checked the paper copy and the website.  Indeed
there is a sleep study in JAMA, but it does not mention IQ.
Also checked:  Johns Hopkins Intellihealth, Reuters, National Sleep Foundation
website, American Sleep FOundation website, and USATODAY.

If you have any information on this story, I'd appreciate your help.
