1. What are the main differences between the recuperation and circadian theories?
Recuperation theory, states that the bodies homeostasis stage is thrown out of whack when we are awake.

suggests that nothing will happen to the body if we do not sleep, but suggests its a good idea to reserve energy and to keep from harming ourselves in the dark. Read more: ]
