Studies show that sleep deprivation can have an effect on your memory.
Sleep deprivation can cause all kinds of mishaps like putting your phone into the fridge instead of the milk or trying to open the garage door with the TV remote. A recent study shows that "regardless of the total amount of sleep, a minimal unit of uninterrupted sleep is crucial for memory consolidation".
