LEILA FADEL, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Leila Fadel.

Are you sleepy, hungry or maybe both? Have we got the job for you. Mattress review website Sleep Junkie will pay five volunteers $1,000 each to eat cheese snacks before going to sleep. The site says the dairy dreamers will help figure out if there's a connection between eating cheese before bed and having nightmares. The sleep study will last three months. And yes, the cheese is free.

It's MORNING EDITION.
