Ethics Erode When We Are Tired, Researchers Say

According to researchers at Harvard and the University of Utah tiredness may be a leading cause in cheating and dishonesty in the class room.  Other studies conducted support this in saying that people show more self-control in the mornings than later in the day.  They also stated that people with high ethical standards were still likely to act unethically later in the day.  In 2011 a study conducted said that subjects cheated more if they were required to repeat the original task.  This same study also supported that sleep deprivation causes more immoral behavior.
