Sleep protects your brain: study

06 January, 2014

UPPSALA: A new study showed that one night of sleep deprivation increases morning blood concentrations of NSE and S-100B in healthy young men.

The study conducted by researchers at Uppsala University‚ Sweden‚ indicated that these molecules are typically found in the brain.

Fars reported said that their rise in blood after sleep loss may indicate that a lack of snoozing might be conducive to a loss of brain tissue.

These brain molecules typically rise in blood under conditions of brain damage.

Researcher Christian Benedict at the Department of Neuroscience‚ Uppsala University said that our results indicate that a lack of sleep may promote neurodegenerative processes.

Christian Benedict said that the findings of our trial indicate that a good night's sleep may be critical for maintaining brain health.

End.
