A new study reports on a link between lack of restorative sleep and an accumulation of amyloid beta.
According to a new study, the brain activity of those who dream during NREM sleep is closer to the activity of awake people, compared to those who do not dream.
A new study reveals how tactile experiences are encoded in the brain as we sleep.
Sleep may be regulated by inflammasome NLRP3, researchers report.
Natural, restorative sleep can help stave off mental and physical decline as we age.
Using optogenetics, researchers manipulated pulses of neural activity during non REM sleep that made mice either remember of forget things they had learned. This novel study demonstrated that altering sleep spindle oscillations during sleep has an impact on memory formation and retention.
Researchers at Johns Hopkins have identified specific neurons in the zona incerta that appear to help promote sleep. The discovery could help develop new treatments for insomnia and other sleep disorders.
As we age, slow brain waves during non-REM sleep fail to time contact with sleep spindles efficiently, leading to a lessened ability to form new memories correctly, a new study reports.
A simple actimeter device is helping researchers better understand sleep duration and quality in humans.
